True Friend Inspiration

This is for today's INSPIRATION -BEDDING and SKETCH CHALLENGES. I had a really hard time with this one. I usually always go with my 1st impressions and the 1st thing I thought of was True Friend in Vanilla on rust and Handsome Hunter background. Well the trouble I had was getting the vanilla on rust to work. I used my vanilla craft ink and embossed w/clear EP which turned dark on the cs. Not what I was after, so I turned the CS over and tried again using white which did not do much better so I reheated and applied white ep again which sorta speckled. I used my handsome hunter to color the inside of the flowers as best as I could. The top panel is vanilla CS with the single flower inked using markers and huffing. I stamped the lines from So Many Sayings in Mellow moss. This is matted on handsome hunter then mellow moss and popped up. All edges were distressed. I used twill ribbon and tied a mellow moss paper knot.Hope you like it.
