When I got this stamp I was thinking of engagement, wedding, anniversary and valentines cards, but I do think it fits in beautifully with the friendship theme. I am keen on a layout where everything's going on in one corner leaving lots of lovely white space in the rest of the card - have you noticed?!
Here's a close-up of that beautiful image which I've coloured with aquapainter and ink (you may notice that colouring is definitely not my forté but I had fun and that's the main thing!)
This is such a simple card - stamp the image, colour it and mount it onto first a mat then onto the card front. For a bit of interest, I decided to stamp the image again in Riding Hood Red, cut the sentiment out as a banner, add a little piercing and attach it across the layers.
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Life Shared
Ink: Wild Wasabi, Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red, Crumb Cake, So Saffron
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red
Other: Blush Blossom marker (for colouring the skin), aquapainter, Essentials piercing templates

I saw several car collisions on my way home through the snow yesterday - nothing serious thank goodness - but it does make me think that it really is sensible to stay at home if it's at all possible. The rest of my family think otherwise however and won't consider they've made the most of the snow unless they've gone sledging down 'Death Hill'! It should be a comfort that my husband has gone with them but frankly he's worse than all of them put together and I shall be glad when they're safely home!
