Friendship Angel Art Challenge

Did you know that February is National Friendship month? I participated in a TAC Angel Art Challenge for the month of February with a frienship theme. Our challenge was to create something using a "friendship" sentiment.

I decided to do something a little bit different. Over a year ago I bought the ugliest wall hook hanging from Hobby Lobby. It was on clearance for $1.40 and had a picture of an out-of-focus $10 bill on it. What would you do with something like that? Anyway, when I saw it, I thought it would be fun to alter and I FINALLY pulled it out of the cabinet to do something with. It already had a black "frame" so I just covered up the ugly part! Here's what the final product looks like:



The stamp sets that I used for the flower images were TAC's "Blooming Builders" and "Petal Pack". The sentiment came from the "Seeds of Blessing" set. The ink colors are all VersaMagic inks that are in the TAC catalogue. The button is from the new Lemonade Buttons & Blossoms embellishment cubes from Serendipity. I tied some blue scrapper's floss through the holes, tied it and then curled it. The ribbons are also from TAC's ribbon line. The green paper is from TAC's Angelee paper pack.
