Art Impressions Challenge - "Piece it Together"-Paper Piecing

Do you have special friends like this?  

The kind of friends that you hang out with and have the best stories. :o)  My design today features a fun Party Group (Sku#U1552) and the sentiment Always be Friends (Sku#G3566). 

This week's Art Impressions Blog challenge is  "Piece it Together" - Paper Piecing. I used a combination of inks, markers and paper piecing with design papers to make this card.  This size of the card is 4" x 6".

I inked up the party people image with black distress ink pad and stamped on glossy card stock. Allowed to dry. Decided which parts of the image I wanted to use the design papers on. To color, I used a small paint brush with various ink pads. I also dipped my brush in water to help spread color. I was not sure if it would work on the glossy card stock, but it did! To add color in small places, or to fill in for ink pads I did not have, I used markers.

I also added some detail with a micro pen. To provide grounding for the party group, I used a stipple brush and gray ink pad. I stamped the sentiment last with VersaFine, using a stamp positioner for placement.
