Celebrating Friendship

Meet today's card.  A simple card I made using stamps from Penny Black and a piercing tool.

Penny Black has come out with some fabulous floral images that I love to colour with my markers to get a watercolour look.  This one is called Passionate.  
So I began by cutting a circle mask with a Spellbinder die and my trusty Cuttlebug.  Next, I positioned my stamp inside my MISTI, coloured with markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I repeated that process, adding darker shades of the purples.  Leaving the mask in place, I sponged on some Distress inks to define the stamped area. 
The sentiment was stamped using Memento black ink and is from the great Sentiment Collection set.
Lastly, I pierced around the outline of the circle.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Thanks so very much for all the times you come to visit.  I do truly appreciate all you comments and emails.  I do try my best to get back to all of you but please know that if I don't get back to you right away, it is due to lack of time.  I am a home daycare provider with a house filled with little people and much activity.  I am often knee deep in crafts, planning, meals or just going through my busy days caring for all my little ones.  It really keeps me hopping!

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ MISTI/ Cuttlebug/ Spellbinder die/ Memento markers/ Mini mister/ piercing tool/ applicator tool

Wonderful card Karen! And your design and colouring are just fabulous.

I like that you used a die cut as a mask to qualify for our challenge :)
