This 5″ x 7″ card was made with a White Daisy card base and a Pear cardstock front. The beautiful pink patterned paper is from a new paper packet called Brushed. The yellow cardstock strip is also a new color, called Canary.

The ladies were stamped in Black ink and then colored in with watercolor pencils. Once all of the sections were colored in, I went back over each color with a blending pen to soften and get the watercolor effect.

The sentiment “Everything is Better with a Friend” does not look like I stamped it. If you scroll back up the page to a picture of the stamp set, you’ll see that the words are stacked on top of each other. Using a masking technique, I stamped “Everything is Better,” added 3 dots with my black pen, and then stamped “With a Friend.” I colored over the two sentiments with watercolor pencils and then blended with my blending pen.

The pink flower was from a different stamp set called “A Budding Friendship.”  It was stamped with Black, Pixie, and Hollyhock inks, and then a piece of foam tape was added to the back to pop it off of the page.

I will be linking this card to the Mojo Monday Challenge #357, found HERE.

I’ll see you in the craft room,
