Let's be friends!

It was friendship week this week over on the Hero Arts blog, I couldn't help but to play along! I am just loving my Copic markers and have been using them on everything I've been making lately- still trying to get the hang of them!

What's a friendship cards with out the cute dolls? I couldn't resist using these two on a card together:

Supplies: Four Dolls; Thoughtful Messages (Hero Arts), Floral Screen & Bloom Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug-Provocraft), Making Memories patterned paper, gems, Copics

I also wanted to do something along the "pretty" line instead of just cutesy ones, here I used my markers to color directly on the stamp, then without re-coloring, offset the stamp just a slight bit to create the shadow look- you can see it in the close up picture.

Supplies: CardArt Happy Wishes; Tree, Bird & Messages (Hero Arts), Textile embossing folder (Cuttlebug-Provocraft), Making Memories patterned paper, gems, Copics

Another one using some pretty flowers! I wanted to incorporate the embossing folder as more than just the background on this one. I gave the flowers some extra dimension with pop-dots and also rolled some glue dots up under the wings of the butterfly to give them a rounded look too:

Supplies: Thoughtful Messages (Hero Arts), Square scallop nestabilities (Spellbinders), Stylized Flowers embossing folder (Cuttlebug-Provocraft), pearls, Copics, Stickles

And finally, this isn't for any challenge- I was just digging around in my ever-growing stash of stamps where I more often-than-not forget I have certain ones! I'm sure I picked this one up on sale at some point- these 2 bunnies were just dying to be inked! So going along with the friendship theme, I made this!

Supplies: Daisy Bunnies (Penny Black), Whoo Loves You? (Hero Arts), Stickles, buttons, Copics

Thanks for stopping by & hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
