Friendship isn't a Big Thing

Hello All!!!!!!!  It's Wanda here today with a mixed media card. 

My main panel is 6 3/8" x 4 3/4".  Using the Flourished Frame Stencil I applied white Embossing Paste to the panel (be sure to clean the stencil right away when finished).  Once the paste was dry, I inked over the panel with Distress Oxide Inks - Fossilized Amber in the center area and Cracked Pistacchio around the edges - allowing the colors to blend in the frame area.  Once inked I lightly sprayed the panel with water and dried it.  Next I used the Distress Marker Spiced Marmalade on the embossing paste, applying some on the top of the paste and then using my finger to rub and spread it.  Yes, some went off the paste onto the card creating shadows, more in some areas and less in others.  The quote, Friendship Isn't A Big Thing, was stamped onto the panel with Archival Ink Jet Black using the Misti Stamping Tool.  It was stamped a few times to make it nice and dark.  Next I stenciled the hearts, Hearts and Paws Prints Spray Stencil, with Fossilized Amber Oxide.  Where the ink went over the lettering it softened the color but I hadn't removed the stamp from the press so was able to stamp it again.  Later I decided I should have used Cracked Pistacchio so stenciled the hearts again bumping the stencil a bit and not covering all the Fossilized Amber. I then gave a very light misting of water over the panel.  I had meant to stamp the quote again but forgot until I was already assembling the flower on the card.  It is not as noticeable in person as it is in the picture.  The flower is Susan's Garden Notes Queen Anne's Lace (Elizabeth Craft Designs). There are wonderful videos on YouTube for cutting and assembling the flowers.  Finally I edged the panel with Distress Paint Tarnished Brass.  This is layered to a white panel, green craft thread (Tim Holtz) wrapped around, and layered to the folded green card.
