PB: girlfriends

For a minute there thought I'd lost my internet connection (seem to have a temperamental modem) so best post this in case it goes again.



This is for the second Penny black challenge which is 'friendship' and the layout was loosely based on PTW sketch by Katharina with emphasis on the word 'loosely' as I didn't think the scallop edge suited this card, it's not a square card and the sketch was more elegant and less cute (but I just can't seem to make a card without adding a stamped image)!

I love this stamp, it's so funny, also got the one of them in a row knitting.

Materials:
  • Images:'chicky night' PB stamp. 'girl friends' and 'hello' studio G 99p clear stamp sets. girlfriends randomly stamped with versamark then heat embossed with holographic powder.
  • Coloured with: Letraset Promarkers with touch of stardust and glaze pens on the wine glasses and jewellery
  • Paper: Coredination's Black Magic cardstock (black on 1 side, colour below it and on the back so great for sanding, embossing). strip on the right has been embossed with folder then sanded down to reveal the red underneath. Strip on the left has just been torn down one edge to reveal the red and have also used the red side another piece to mat the image. The brown piece was some paper I found in papermill a while ago which has this great wooden finish and feel to it - might see it better if you click on photo.
  • Others: ric rac ribbon, prima flowers & pearl brads from stash. Central image is actually raised on 3d foam pads but can't tell from photo.
