One Good Friend

A big hello to all my blog friends old and new. It's Friday, so that means a new weekly challenge over at Crafts4eternity.and for this week we have a SKETCH challenge. I didn't think I would get my DT post done this week as I am full of a shocking cold and feeling very sorry for myself indeed, but as they say "the show must go on".
This is my piece for this week

and this is the sketch I based it on

This originally started out as just a tag but I decided to make it into a card.
Items used
Teesha Moore Zettology stamps stamped onto dictionary paper, the hats were stamped onto plain paper, cut out and paper pierced over.
Tim Holtz Stars layering stencils using texture paste.
Distress stains Wild honey, Marigold & Fired brick
Background was created by splodging distress stains onto an acrylic block and then stamping with it.
Tim Holtz psychedelic grunge stamps
Kaisercraft texture stamps Arty & chevrons
sentiment Inkadinkado "Tell it how it is" set
Archival ink pads Vermillion & Monarch Orange
Tim Holtz tissue tape

  12. Poor you - do hope the honey and lemon manages to knock the cold on the head! And you'd never think you were feeling under the weather looking at this fabulous card, so bold and vivid and full of colour and life! I love the layered stamping and stencilling and the main image is great, especially with the paper-pieced hats. Lovely work altogether!

    Feel better soon,
