Friendship card with Astrid

Hello lovely Shimmerz friends, - today I have a card to share celebrating friendship.

The card is made with two different panels and here is the list of products I used:
Paints:
Inklingz: Meet me @ Sunset, Miner Miner 49er Penny 4 Your Thought and Tarnished Treasure.
Creameez: Sage It Isn't So
Sprays:
Vibez: Egg Noggin
Coloringz: Chocolate Brownee
Spritz: Olive Branch, Treasured Hymn
For the dark background panel I used Kraft card and painted it first with Penny 4 Your Thoughts. Then I used Tarnished Treasure through a stencil to add a bit of variation.

The central panel was dry embossed with an embossing folder and then colour was added with the help of the paints and sprays.
The large leave cut and embossed with the Tim Holtz layered leaf die and embossing folder was first painted with Sage Is N't So and then I added some Olive Branch Spritz for a bit more variation.
The little wooden butterflies were first stamped with a script stamp in Archival ink and then coloured with Miner Miner 49ner and then darkened with Penny 4 Your Thoughts and Tarnished Treasure.
The friends label was just a little embellishment from my stash...
Well, that's it pretty much, - hope you like my card and of course, - thanks for your visit like always!
And if you decide to order some of the lovely Shimmerz products from the store

Beautiful card here again Astrid. I love how you decorated the small butterflies yourself to fit with this special project, that´s a really great idea and a good way to get all these old wodden items used but it all looks fabulous as usual hun.
