It's Not All Black and White

A Friend's Blessing

I made this card following the current MFT sketch. It uses a new Annie LaPoint - Peppermint stamp. Pretty, eh? I really like this new line from My Favorite Things. I stamped the image, minus sentiment. Then masked it to stamp just the top of the image a couple more times. I added an old vellum metal edge tag, for Laurie's Dare To Get Dirty Challenge, and water colored for Christine's. (You'll only be able to follow those links if you're a Splitcoast Fan Club Member.)
What's In It?
Stamps: Annie LaPoint's Peppermint (MFT Presents); A True Friend (A Muse)
Paper: river rock, soft sky, basic black (Stampin' Up!); white (Papertrey Ink); water color (Canson 100lb)
Ink: onyx black (Versafine); soft sky, mellow moss, bashful blue (SU!); C-1 COPIC marker
Accessories: square vellum metal edge tag, vintage brads (SU!); butterfly punch (Martha Stewart); ribbon (American Crafts); swiss dot cuttlebug folder (ProvoCraft); circle nestabilities (Spellbinders); dimensionals; water color brush; black gel pen (Sakura)
