Friends - Cheaper Than Therapy

I decided to go for the inky and messy look today (I'm a real fan of yellow and green fingernails lol) so I made a 6x4 postcard. The background is a mixture of Dylusion spray inks and Inkadinks.
The stamps are mostly from Art Journey, although the bird is from The Paper Company. The guy's shirts have been painted in Inkadinks. One drop on my craft mat goes a long long way and the colours are really vibrant - I love them!
The quote stamp originally said 'Chocolate It's cheaper than therapy' and it's always reminded me of Crocodile Dundee when he's asking why people have therapist's rather than just talking to their friends, so I left the chocolate bit off. It has to be the first time I've EVER turned down chocolate!
I'm entering this into the Gingersnap challenge which is 'shared moments, and the Shopping our Stash challenge which is no coloring allowed (pens or pencils).
Thanks very much for looking x
