When Friends 24/7 first came out, it was my main go to set but I've neglected it lately and thought I would use it for the New Techniques Class scheduled for 1 April 2011. If you want to participate in this class, you need to register by 25 March 2011. Click here for all the details.
This set is part of the Shelli Signature Collection, and coordinates with the Friendly Words jumbo wheel. With the Friends 24/7 set, you have the perfect set to tell your friends how much you appreciate them and their company. After all, isn't it a friend who goes shopping with you, goes to the movies with you, makes cards with you?
The flower image was perfect for the bleaching technique. I tried it 3 different times and each one was different. And they were all gorgeous!
I'm working on a video that shows you how it's done but I probably won't post it until after the New Techniques Class. But if you have any questions, please ask away!
One of the finishes touches to the card which made it simple yet elegant was the Chantilly Crochet Trim single knot to the 1 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and the 3 little Basic Pearls. Yes, my supply of pearls is in and I will not run out again!
The background is Very Vanilla Card Stock embossed with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The overall effect is like a watercolor painting within a frame!
I hope that you enjoyed today's card. Please let me know what you think by leaving me a comment – I love to receive comments. And of course, I love answering questions that you may have about the cards that I create or the techniques I use.
Thanks for stopping by today!
