If Friends Were Flowers...

Good Morning...

The challenge this time at
'For a Friend'

...and the prize for the lucky winner is a
£10 Gift Voucher 
Handmade Bliss
(Who have a fabulous 20% off sale at the moment).
I tried something completely different for this card (still sticking to that important pink theme though)!

A while ago I treated myself to a Copic Air System...This week, I decided I had looked at it in the box for long enough and unpacked it to have a play.

Well, after going through quite a few sheets of card, several markers, and lots of cups of tea - the background to this card was the result.

More practice needed for certain but what fun!

I used the new MFT Stamp and Die Set 'Harvest Mice' to make this card - fantabulous and cute!  So many different card options I may just go mad.

I coloured this sweetie with Copics and had another go at the stippled fur technique, which still is n't quite right but may be slowly getting there...(I strongly suspect I am too impatient and not letting the ink layers dry before I start with the blender pen)!

The paper for the frame is by Doodlebug Designs and is cut out with an MFT Stitched Frame Die.

Finally I added the little die cut heart and a sentiment from the Harvest Mice stamp set.

...and here we are,
if friends were flowers, I'd pick you...
