F is for Friendship

Time for another letter on The Craft Barn alphabet challenge.  This time the letter is F with the added twist that a heart has to be included.  Friend immediately sprung to mind.  As I haven't used my Gelatos for while this was a good opportunity to  get them out.  The background is created with Gelatos, blended with a baby wipe and then gesso on top.


Materials used:
Craft Individuals: CI284
PaperArtsy: EDY10
IndigoBlu: BFF
Fancy Pants: bella brush
Gelatos: blood orange, tangerine, mango, banana, spearmint, 
lime, cotton candy, blueberry, boysenberry
Stabilo All pencil: blue
Archival Ink: jet black
white gel pen
multi matte medium

  4. Well don't I just want to be friends with them! Your journal page is fabulous! Love those bits of framing at the corners of the card the girls are stamped on. Also love the way the words friendship and million look...did you add marks to the stamping of those? Have never thought of that before. The heart is the same and it looks teriffic. Great background tying everything together.

  11. I'm REALLY late and know it, but I simply had to visit, even though the next CB challenge has already been posted.This is incredible. The stamp you used goes so well with the sunset background. I'd be jumping for joy, too if I had that scene in front of me!
