Friends to the End

I am back today with my end of the "Face-Off" challenge with Margaret.
I made my card last night while watching my taped versions of Project Runway.  What better show to watch while "designing" clothes for a girl, huh?!

My card features a LaLa Land image of Marci.  I colored her with Copics except for the orange part of her dress.  I just didn't have a Copic color that didn't class with the paper.  The blues were too bright or too blue.  The oranges were just too orange.  Not that I didn't have a big choice, because I do own about 125 Copics.  So I went to my pencil/paint drawer and found my Aquarelles.  I used my water paintbrush, dabbing the end of the crayon to pick up color.  I'm not very experienced with this form, but I think I will try it more often!  DP is Kaiserkraft Devonshire Collection and cs is DCWV.  The diecut is from Memory Box and I used various sized Swarovski crystals for accent.  The sentiment, stamped with Versafine Sepia, is from PTI and diecut flags are Sizzix.

My sketch comes from this week's Paper Players #138.  I am also entering the following challenges:

Forever Friends - One for the Girls
Crafty Cardmakers - Friendship

Thanks for stopping by!  Let us know what you think of our FACE-OFF!!!

  1. Oh my goodness...this is gorgeous. Clean lines, nice colors, LOVE the getting addicted to these girls and must have some of my own (Order is in the cart already). :) Now you've inspired me to use some of my pencils too. I'm such a copy cat, but isn't it the ultimate form of compliment? Good job!

  2. This is adorable. Thanks so much for sharing:)
