Hello Friend

A simple little card that grew as I went. It started out very CAS with just the Rabbit and teddy bear sitting in the air chatting. They are a MFT set and they come with some amazing sentiment but I ended up using a diecut to go with it. After I had coloured the pair 

I decided they needed some scenery. I don't recommend this way to add colour as its more fiddly and next time I will do them and diecut the shapes or even make sure I have proper masks. But of course

the ideas hit after the fact and I just went with the flow and improvised. We have a wee bit of green on my cute rabbits feet but hey maybe he was frolicking in the lush wet grass and his fur got stained. I copic coloured my rabbit and teddy then started on the background.

The background was done with MFT stencils for clouds and hills and I used Distress Ink. First time with the clouds so my layers were a bit wonky but I liked what I saw. I added shadow around the friends with copics. Added the die cut 'hello friend' to finish it off.

I loved those stencils, I can feel a stencil time coming on. Lots more backgrounds. Take so much of the work out of things with these amazing ideas.


Without the twist
