Updated - Friendship - Think Monday - Think ATC

This is my ATC for this week's challenge at Think Monday, Think ATC which is friendship. The background and flower were colored by alchol inks. The design was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's Thinking Inking video here:

Jennifer has several videos on You Tube and you can do a search for "Thinking Inking" and find them. They are all great videos!
I did not have the rub-ons that she used and just stamped my flower stem and leaves and my background paper was a glossy white embossed paper. My flower was not felt. It is just a paper flower that was a different color before I inked it with the alcohol inks.
The quote says, "If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give." ~George MacDonald

Super beautiful background. Can you give a more specific link to how to do it? I went to Jennifer's blog but I couldn't find it.

Also having much trouble with the OpenID today.

Very nice ATC with a great background! I would like to try this technique myself, but could not find it on Jennifer's blog. Can you give a link where to find this technique (maybe include it in the post) ?
