Friends - Wee Memories Challenge # 57 - Stamp It

Wee Memories challenge this week is to Stamp It and I thought it would be fun to ink up these fun girlfriends and create a card with them.  I am sure my DD's will want to use this for one of their friends. 


The image is drawn by Mo Manning. I am a huge fan of her work. (Thanks to Alice and her lovely cards using Mo's images I started looking for her images in rubber)  There are a couple of companies carrying her images in rubber and I purchased the BFF stamp from Stamping Bella.  The background is the friends definition from Hero Arts. The sentiment came with the image and a wonderful sentiment for the image.

The image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with markers and a water brush. The background was stamped with brown pigment ink. The ground was painted with the waterbrush and distress ink.

The butterflies are cut using the new Memory Box Butterfly Delight die cut and Memory Box dots paper.

The little tags are from a Hero Arts clear sentiment set.

Hope your Saturday is off to a good start. I have a few errands to run today and lots of cleaning. (Sigh) Seems like the dust bunnies have been playing in my house this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
