Javabella Friendship

Day 5 of Lostie Chatapalooza. Kris' challenge today was to find a image that contained two characters and make a friendship card. I dug through my bella images and stumbled across this one. It would have worked for yesterday's challenge too! Looks like I'm stuck on a coffee theme for the moment which is odd considering it's crazy hot here. Maybe it is wishful thinking for cooler weather, LOL! I colored my image in with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I love those things! I had to get a little creative with the colors and mix some green, yellow, and brown together because the set doesn't include an olive shade. But I think I got close. I added a little Stardust Stickles to the flower. For the sides, I used my mat pack to pierce some holes, then took a Chocolate Chip marker and drew in some faux stitching. On the awning, the top part is glued flat to the background, where the scalloped bottom is raised with a dimensional. I used my circle and oval Coluzzle to cut out the parts for the sentiment. This layout is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge # 22. You must go check out the adorable cupcake card she made!!! Soooooo super cute! You can view the other Lostie cards here! Happy Stamping!
