Friends are the Flowers......

Do you ever print out digi images on photocopy paper 'in case' you need to do any masking on your card?  Well, I do, and the Technique Junkies has the perfect tutorial to use those images using a photo transfer technique called Paint transfer.

 How fun is that?  I used a 2nd image for the flower, colored it with Copics and layered it in the paint can. This digi is from Sweet and Sassy Stamps. The beautiful ribbon is from Paper Temptress. The corner and border dies are Cheery Lynn and are from Sweet Stamps.

Polka Doodles- Spring colors/pastels
Freshly Brewed Challenge- Flowers

Just a quick note- my Dad is out of the hospital, and was transferred to a rehab facility- being told he cannot go home until he can walk without assistance.  He has trouble putting weight on his leg....so I am heading to Ky to help out my Mom- and will return home late Monday night.  If I am slow or absent commenting on blogs, that is why......Thanks in advance for your understanding!

Thanks for stopping by! Shelly

Gorgeous card! Looks like an fun technique! Sending prayers your way for a speedy recover for your Dad. I know how much time and energy it take to care for a parent who doesn't live close. Safe travels and take precautions so you don;t get blood clots traveling so much! Been there; done that and I don;t want to go back.
