Apply alcohol inks (Wild Plum, Butterscotch, Lettuce) to felt applicator with a bit of pearl mixative and apply color to glossy paper. Even out texture with blending solution. Cover enough paper to stamp two collage images. Stamp collage twice with jet black archival ink. Trim one image to be framed. From the second impression, cut out "amore" tag and the square friends block. Stamp three flowers with jet black archival ink on the remaining pieces of colored glossy paper and trim.
Create a frame with a 1/4" border for the collage using mat board. Color the inside and outside edges with the black pen. Cover the top of the frame with copper tape. Create a stippled effect by gently indenting the foil on the frame with an embossing stylus. Antique the frame using espresso and pitch black alcohol inks.
Mount frame on collage, mat with brocade then peach glow. Attach matted image to iced cocoa card.
Insert small brads into the centers of the flowers and attach to frame.
Using a small piece of mat board, mount the friendís square on the collage using the stamped outline as a guide for placement. Apply the "amore" tag directly to the collage.
Fill in small hearts with butterscotch dimensional pearls. Let dry.
