Fur-Ever Friends Clean and Simple Friendship Card
When I saw this image entitled "Fur-Ever Friends" from DigiBox designs, I fell in love with it. The animals are just so adorable and the sentiment was just purrr-fect for a friendship card.
I left the card pretty simply by just using a white A2 base card and adding mats of yellow and green. I colored the image using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Prismacolor colored pencils. I raised the colored image off the card using a piece of craft foam and attached the cute yellow flower brads in each corner. Except for the coloring, this card came together rather quickly. Here is a closeup of the colored portion of the card:
I plan on using this again with a different sentiment and will post that one as soon as I create it.
