Best Friends!


Today's challenge at Tiddly Inks is to make a card for your best friend!  I have so many really good friends  that it was hard to choose!  However, my upcoming crafting weekend with Karlene, has her on my mind!  She's got a sweet little dog named Lola that I thought of when I saw that little white dog in this image!

This card was so fun to make!!!  I decided to play up the playful goth feel in the Dogs R Fun image from Tiddly Inks by colouring the hair bright orange!  I coloured the whole image with Copic Markers (Hair-E35, YR18, YR15, Y17; Dress-BG07, BG05, BG02, BG000; Shirt and tights-R27, R24, YR18; Skin-E34, E21, E00; Big Dog-E47, E35, E34, E21; Small Dog-C4, C2).  I centered the colours around this sheet of designer paper I found in my scrap bin.  Usually with an image like this, I'd love to add something fun around the circle of the image, but scallops tend to be too cute.  So I distressed the heck out of those scallops to give it a much more grungy feel.  The metal circles are from the jewelry department at Walmart.  I thought they looked like some of those best friends necklaces or rings.  :)  For even more detail, I added scraps of rickrack, distressed at the edges, and some cute Prima Flowers with SU Rhinestone brads.  The sentiment was just printed from my computer.

Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope you have a wonderful day!

Great card! I love the rick rack and the ribbon with the buckle trim. The distressing works great and as anyone with doggy buddies knows, things are usually a little chewed and distressed looking anyway! :D
Hope you have a great weekend and your friend enjoys her card! :)
