Friendship

This is an adorable digi by Elizabeth Dulemba, a very talented illustrator.  Check out all the free images you can download from her site!  This is one of my favorites, and I'm entering it in a challenge at the Desert Island Crafts blog, challenge #2.   Here's how it works:

The challenge is quite simple, all you have to do is make a card/project using 3 or more items from my itinerary.
Juanita's Desert Island Itinerary
1. Monochromatic
2. Movie or Book inspired
3. Buttons
4. The word “ FRIEND(S)” in your sentiment
5. Border Punch
6. Only one pattern paper
7. The color Red
8. No flowers
9. Swirls
10. Sparkle

I used only one patterned paper (#6), included the color red (#7), did not use any flowers (#8), and added sparkle at the corners of the die cut (#10).  I wasn't sure if the word "friendship" counted for #4, but I'm more than covered with the others!

The image was colored with colored pencils which were then blended with Gamsol.  I'm loving the subtle coloring and shading using Gamsol!  Not that I'm ready to retire my Copics, not by a LONG shot!
