Hi all! I am honored to be a guest designer at Addicted to CAS. The challenge is FRIENDS.
And here is my take:
I love word challenges – they are so open to interpretation! I was able to find lots of images in my index that I could use for a friend card, but I settled on these little birds as I haven’t used them in ages.
I did alter the sentiment. Instead of “friend” it ended with “happy ending”. I just trimmed those two words off and stamped the sentiment then went back and stamped the “friend”. I like how it is a bit bigger than the rest as it brings the focus.
I stamped all my images with Antique Linen distress and then used other distress inks to watercolor. Not only did that make coloring so much easier, but I was also able to extend the branch to the length I needed. After doing the branch, leaves, and birds, I let it dry. Then I went back and added the blue circle (can you believe that is done just by eyeing it?!!). After that was dry, I masked off the birds and did a bit of splattering with the darker blue for some texture.
I hope you’ll join in at Addicted to CAS!
Thanks for stopping by!
