Life is Friendship .....




Needed a card to say thanks to a friend so made this card.  I started with a 5.5 x 5.5 in white card blank as the base.  I then cut two smaller matts, one in white and one in dark turquoise card.





I then stamped with a bubble wrap effect stamp in Memento summer sky dye ink.  I then also stamped in Memento black ink the life words (Wendy Vecchi - Studio 490).

I then stamped the girls (Crafty Individuals) in more memento black on a piece of white card and coloured with alcohol ink markers before trimming out.  This was embellished with some Glossy Accents on the girls clothing and when dry I used a Posca silver marker to highlight some spots on the frame.





This plate was then mounted as shown on foam pads.





The other words (Crafty Individuals) were stamped in black Memento on some white card, trimmed out and matted on another piece of the blue card before being stuck in place on more foam pads to finish.

I liked the muted colours and relative simplicity of this card.  Hope you do too !!
