Hello and friendship cards

Here are a few cards that I made for the Hero Arts February2012B Flickr Group challenge. For this first card I took some scrap paper and tore the edges and laid it over my card. Then I sponged Peeled paint in the area where the flowers are. Next, I stamped three flowers from the Color Me flowers stamp set by Hero Arts (CG133). Then I colored in each flower with copic markers (can't remember the colors that I used). I wanted to keep this card bulk free as much as possible. For my finishing touches, I added some ribbon and a sentiment. (The sentiment comes from Hero Arts Truly Appreciated stamp set CL380.) For this next card I used the following stamp sets from Hero Arts: Everyday Sayings CL342 and Sunny Smiles CG199. I colored the basket and flowers with Prisma Color pencis and blended the colors with Gamsol (orderless mineral spirits). The sentiment is stamped onto a Grommet Tag, made by Spellbinders.

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate the comments.
