Hello Friend

This week’s blogger challenge theme is friendship. I used one of the new releases from The Cat’s Pajamas along with the current sketch at Retro Sketches to put together this friendship themed design.

Hello Friend card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
My focal image is from the new Nature’s Hello set. The big, bright sunflower in the image is perfect for a card for a friend! I colored the image with Copic markers and used foam tape to adhere it to a yellow dotted panel. I used some cloud patterned paper to make a backdrop for the image. The patterned paper is backed with a longer panel of coordinating teal cardstock. It’s adhered to a golden yellow card base over a strip of green striped patterned paper. Once all the panels were in place, I stamped the “hello friend” sentiment from the Reel Experts set in black ink just next to the bear image.
