Another Friday... Friends with Flair!

Hello my friends...

I participated last week on the Friends with Flair at Unity and I loved the feeling...  So I'm skipping some chores today to spend time posting this before going to work...  Oh the things you do for scrapbooking madness!!!

I'm sharing this card I made with the Angie Girl stamp collection from Unity.  




I stamped it with black ink on several patterned papers and in white cardstock and then used different parts to assemble the whole lady.  In the white cardstock I painted the skin and cut to use as base, adding a blue shadow around it.
For the top and bottom of dress I used two different patterned papers and then stamped the flower alone several times to create layers.
I also used a brad for the layered flower in her dress.


I hand wrote the word "mami" (mom) and cut it to use it as the sentiment placed in top of a polka dot ribbon.

The patterned papers are "oldies" collections from DCWV and Basic Grey...  they're never really old you know... I have tons of papers from former collections that I still use them a lot. Maybe it's because I  don't really throw away scraps... I use them!



I added details in blue to the Angie Girl and the sentiment, and the distressing in the layers, and with the patterned paper layer at top and bottom just to break the color pattern and to stand out the gem in the flower.



Hope you like it.





I'm linking this to the Unity blog for the Friends with Flair event.  Don't forget to leave your comment.

Happy weekend.
