Great Friend

 
Hello.  Give me some stamps, paper and Distress inks and I am having fun.  This card started with this fun sentiment from Technique Tuesday.  I wanted a way to highlight it over a background. 
This is the process I used. 
I stamped the sentiment in black Memento ink and embossed it with clear powder.  Next, I inked up the background stamp with Versamark ink then rubbed off some of the ink in the center area where the sentiment was placed.  I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.  I painted over that with watered down Distress inks and splattered with white paint.   When that was all dry, I coloured the camera with Copic markers and added it with pop dots.
 
Also adding my card to these challenges:
 
Little Red Wagon- EMBOSSING

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  I appreciate it so much!
 
Supplies:  stamps- Technique Tuesday, Michaels, Hero Arts/ Distress ink/ Memento ink/ embossing powder/ pop dots/ Copic markers
