MC Jan/16 - Stencil Shift Bkgr'd - ECD Friends - Hold a True Friend

I came across this background technique and decided to play a bit... From Paper Artsy ( I made a background with a mesh type stencil as well, but that's for another day... I love the effect.'d_ECDFriends_HoldATrueFriend.htmlAnd then I was looking at my challenge list and started adding this and that BIG GRIN. For a change I didn't do anything on the inside this time. Maybe one day...

You can see all the details and descriptions as well as instructions/colors and more pics for the technique by clicking on any card image. Enjoy'd_ECDFriends_HoldATrueFriend.html

I love your background creation as well as the the rest f your for. It is interesting that we were on the same wave length as I posted about friends, too, with a digital collage. The 3D nature to this artwork is so nice and I love all the different things you used. So nice.
