Dear friends now and forever

Its all about friends today for my Retro Cafe Art design piece. I was able to visit a dear friend this weekend so, this is for her. She adores vintage sparkly things so you could say she was my inspiration. 

To begin I stamped a manila tag with a textured stamp using muted colors, then drew lines as a frame around the edges. Some water colored layers and glitter accents highlight the corners of the tag too. The three vintage ladies came next from Retro Cafe Art Vintage Lady Glass Negatives collage sheet. Of course I added some painted and tiny Stickles details. The sentiment came from that same sheet too. The ombre blue ribbon flower was layered next. I did add some watercolor paint, glitter  accents and the swirly button on top of it. A little bit of robin's egg blue grosgrain  ribbon tied on the top  finished this vintage piece.

Hope you will get to spend time with your dear friends this week.
take care, gerri
