Friends - Vertical Sketch Challenge - Paper Craft Crew Challenge #480

 I participate in monthly sketch challenges with an on-line group I belong to. This month I used the sketch from the Vertical sketch challenge with PCC 480  to make the cards for this month.

The topic for this month's challenge is "friends" and I thought the characters, especially the bear and the fox,  from the stamp set "Count on Me" would be perfect for this. So, I stamped them both with Black Memento ink and coloured them using Stampin' Blends after which they were cut out.

The card base is Pear Pizzazz card stock, 4 1/4 by 11" scored at 5 1/2".  This I layered with a 4 by 5 1/4" piece of Rings of Love DSP embossed with the Animal Prints Embossing Folder.

The 4 by 3" Basic White art piece has Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz applied using blender brushes. The tree stamped with Pear Pizzazz in the background is from "Campology".

Both images were added to the art piece using tombo glue, after which the completed art piece was added to the card front using dimensionals.

The sentiment is stamped on a strip of Basic white card stock notched at one end.  The edges are sponged lightly with Balmy Blue so that it blends in a bit better.

To complete the art  piece three decorative dots were added to the upper right side.

Supplies Used:

Stamps:  Campology, Count on Me

Inks:  Black Memento, Stampin' Blends (Smoky Slate, Balmy Blue, Basic Black, Cajun Craze), Pear Pizzazz, Balmy Blue
