My friend and me:)

I have had much fun making this card. I like to combine some challenges and this time I used the sketch of a MAWTT challenge and I found very interesting the subject of 365CardsThursday Challenge. The theme was "It's so you". Depending on how you address it, the issue may be easy or difficult:)


I decided to reflect me as a friend. Good friend of my friend. I used Gena and Lena, one of my drawings, which reflects my friend and me. We do all kinds of crafts together (not scrapbooking because it is not her subject). But we have had much fun working together on many other crafts, drinking coffee and talking. I am sure she is going to smile when she sees this card:)

To paint these two white friends, I used white metallic paint in small strokes trying to form little feathers and to the "knitter" friend I used glitter paint. When possible, I like making my own embellishment. This time I made the flowers, with a rhinestone in the center, in a darker tone of pink.

Card supplies:
Image of EdithDesigns (me!) , Bazzill cardstock, 140lb. watercolor paper, miscellaneous designer papers, metallic white paper, La Plume color pencils, Spellbinders Borderabilities In Spades, flower punch paper, rhinestones, white silk thread and my sewing machine.

Challenges:

365 Cards Thursday: It's so You
Charisma Cardz: Flowers
