Friends with Flair....

...or, how I spent my Thursday afternoon. :) Friends with Flair is Unity's Friday blog hop - visit the Unity blog to see the full list of today's FWF!

This project started off as musing about the Simon Says Stamp challenge to use layers. I was playing with a few things, not really "clicking"...and I...dreamed about this one. What came to be isn't precisely like my dream, but pretty darn close.

(Yeah, I know. Dreaming about my stamps? But please don't cure me.)



And a couple of close-ups...



Supplies used:

Unity Stamps - She, Worn Music, and Distressed Dots
Grungepaper. Lots and lots of grungepaper.
And lots and lots of ink. LOL! Distress ink, CTMH white pigment ink, Smooch, Ranger archival black
Glimmer mist, several colors
random metal objects, colored with alcohol inks
Distress stickles, broken china and rock candy
vintage button
random pearls

Thanks for looking!
