You can choose your friends...

Hi everyone,

A quick post to share a quick and simple card I made for the current challenge over at Less Is More, where this week, the theme is, 'Friends'.

And here's my card...

I used Lawn Fawn's, 'Our friendship grows', stamp set for this card.  I started by stamping the large sunflower from the set in the middle of the card, and colouring it using my watercolour markers.  I then give it a good spritz with water, so that all the colours would run all over the background.  I then stamped out the same image on a separate piece of card, and again, coloured using watercolour markers and misted with water to blend.  I also stamped the image onto one of my gorgeous wood veneer sheets from Make The Day Special and used the centre to add to my image for some added interest.  I cut all my extra bits out, give them all a quick lick of clear Wink of Stella, and adhered them in place.  I stamped the sentiment from the same Lawn Fawn set and heat embossed using Wow's 'Fool's Gold' powder.  I matted my panel onto a piece of corrugated card from DCWV to finish off, and there you have it.

Quick and simple, but bright and cheerful.

I hope you like it, please feel free to leave a comment.

Love always'
