Best Friends

I have the honour of joining Crafty Friends for this next challenge as their guest designer.  I'm sponsoring them this time and their theme is Friendship.

I've used a new image Miki & Shyla for my inspiration.  One of the Helen's on my design team (I have three LOL!) asked me to draw an Eskimo boy and Husky and that's what I did :)

I printed the image with the Best Friends sentiment onto a large area of card so I could make a CAS style card.  The image I coloured with Copics and polychromos pencils.

The edges were distressed with vintage photo ink from Tim Holtz.  He's then been mounted onto some black then Kraft card.

The only other things I've done was to add some snowtex to look like they're walking in the snow and use a white gel pen to add lots of little white dots as if it's snowing.

Hope you like my inspiration for this challenge.

You can join me on my SkeepSki Designs Challenge blog and I also have a SheepSki Designs Facebook Group
