I love the image in Hands Collage - I think it captures the essence of friendship... and what better word is there for that than trust?
I started out by stamping the image with black versafine onto white cardstock, then watercolored around the hands themselves to really make them pop. I then matted that image with dark gray, and accented it with a black prima flower and a metal word embellishment (K&Co). I didn't want to mount it onto a stark white card, so I pulled out my handy dandy glimmer screen, and misted over it with silver glimmer mist - it's a perfect way to add interest but not detract from the focal image. I also added some black twill to balance the "blackness" from the flower. It went together pretty quickly, and I love the result!
