Thick as Thieves

Not that long ago one of the girls I work with asked me to make a gift for her “sister” based on a card that she had seen on my blog. However she wanted it in an 8x10 frame. That took me a minute to think about that one because I have never converted a card to a larger work. Then she came back and asked me to include another image to be her “sister” or her. That part I thought, NO problem.

And here’s what I came up with…

Stamps: All Queen Kat Designs – Wa Loli & Bunny Chan
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Ink
Paper: Basic Grey – Wisteria, Bazzill Purple, MFT Perfect Panels
Extras: Copics, Spicas, Perfect Pearls, Currant Alcohol Ink, Purple Jewels, BH&G Frame, Mini Mister, Copic ABS System, Nestabilities

On the mat that came with the frame, I mixed some Perfect Pearls with Currant Alcohol Ink in a Mini Mister and added some water. Once filled I shook it all up and sprayed away then pounced over it with a paper towel to give it a rag effect. I really didn’t even need a heat gun because it dried so fast. I went ahead and did two layers of it, I wish you could see how much it shimmers.

You are a good friend! I'm sure the project was a huge hit with your friend. Love the colors you went with and the special touches you added...the mat looks great and those dew drops are the perfect touch.

Happy New Year!
