Friends #1

My first card with the Stampin' Up! set called "Friends." Even though I made this one first, I decided to show it last:) I had considered using this image for my next year's April calendar page. However, after coloring it - and using twenty Copic markers! - I decided I didn't want to do that much coloring on fourteen more calendar pages. And, after reading one of the sentiments that came with the set, I decided to use it for my swap card at our Group Gathering, which is taking place now. So appropriate - friends.

It's done very simply. I stamped the image with Memento black ink and colored with Copics - as I mentioned above. I matted with matching cardstock and mounted the image on Dimensionals. I cut the sentiment with a stitched square die and matted with the same color cardstock.

This set also has another sentiment which says, "After the rain ... rainbows!" It also has a stamp with a bunny and a basket of tulips. 

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come backand visit again soon!

That image is so cute! And you used 20 markers--wow! Your coloring looks beautiful, though. Maybe if I used more markers, my coloring could look as good as yours.

It's a perfect card for your swap! Beautiful coloring. It does take sooooo many markers and sooooo much time to color, but your image turned out soooo cute!
