Friendship

 Meet today's card.

I picked up a few new stamping goodies and wanted to play with them.
This beautiful collection of leaves is from a set by WPlus 9.

I began by placing the stamps inside my Misti, coloured the leaves with my new Zig markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I repeated that process until I was happy with the inking.
I love how the water helps blend the inks into each other to give the look of watercolour.

I die cut the 'Awesome' from Neat and Tangled and coloured it with my Zigs and sprayed with water to help blend the colours.  
The small 'friend' is from an old set by Papertrey ink that I stamped with Versamark then white heat embossed.

That is a gorgeous card Karen. I hadn't thought of using the Zig markers in that way, I must have a go now, it looks so good. The die cut ombre sentiment looks smashing too. Thanks for the inspiration.
