Treasured Friends

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well this morning. I'm here to share my card for yesterday's SCS sketch challenge. I really liked the simplicity of this sketch. I'm all about the easy to do rectangles and squares, so this one was perfect.
Once again using stamps from OCL! Hey, I got free stamps...of course I'm going to use them!! This time I chose "Treasured Friend" I stamped the image with Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa and then did a bit of shading with my Copic Markers. I stamped the two little girls separately and then cut them out and adhered them to the beach background.
I thought that the papers in the "Linen Closet" collection from DCWV had the perfect colors to go with the beach theme of the stamp. I really like using pattern papers a lot because it helps take out a lot of work with the card and helps the card come together more quickly!
I did a bit of distressing around the center panel before attaching the image. Then I ran the edges along my Antique Linen Distress ink pad.
Finally, I added the brads and completed the card.
Ok, I'm off to study some more. Have a fabulous day everyone!
