One of my favourite images from the recent Indulgence release by Shirleys2Girls is the image Friends - could there be any better indulgence than the good company of friends - with the added bonus of a glass of wine. I've made several cards using the image, which can be bought here, this one uses Ria's pretty sketch from Sketch Saturday. I'm also entering it into Stamp Something's theme of Love Something, we all need and love our friends :).
The image is coloured with Copics and also paper pieced. The pen highlighting the border is a gold metallic which looks better IRL. The papers are free My Mind's Eye papers that came with a magazine, the big chrysanthemum is part of the pack. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and I tied the ribbon with a Bowmaker which I bought from Quixotic Paperie. I'm not the best in the world at tying bows, yes I was one of the last to learn in my class at school :). I watched the online videos of the bowmaker and was not convinced by them. But I gave it a go and I'm delighted with it. It truly makes tying perfect, even bows so simple. Right from the very first practice bow they have worked every time - I love it!
