Friends for Life



I switched gears today and stamped a card that required no colouring at all. When I was blog hopping I came across a sketch/Zva/colour challenge on Lisa Johnson's blog and thought it would be fun to play along.

I'm impatiently patiently waiting for my order of new stamps from Papertrey Ink to arrive so while I wait I reached for my Life set. I dug out (and I really do mean dug it out from under several inches of stacked patterned papers) my SU Urban Garden patterned paper because the colours are perfect for this challenge. I used Night of Navy and Kiwi Kiss inks and added some zig zag stitching around the patterned layer. The entire Zva crystal swirl didn't fit in the spot I wanted to place it so I cut it off and used the leftovers to dot the blue flowers. I added a little more texture by running the patterned piece through my swiss dots Cuttlebug folder before stitching it down.

That's it for me today...

Thanks for stopping by!
