When friends meet... My Papertake Weekly Challenge entry

This week at Papertake we have the following sketch to follow, and the Design Team, including wonderfully talented Katharina herself( who designed this sketch), gave us lovely projects to inspire us. The WoJ stamp being given to the winner makes you want to try your best.. so let's see!!

Yesterday I was really tired, and having come back from the pool with the kids, and made the loads of clothes etc.. I thought I was ready for a quick blog hop, and off to bed! But when I start with papers.. and ribbons.. and colouring.. then I forget about being tired! I loved working with this image, again it's a swap image I received from Maxine. The fact that it's not an image you usually use, it's more fun still! :)

Also purple is my favourite colour.. and the light pastels in this DP is very versatile in itself.The picture here is just not right.. the colours in real life are lovely. Scan colours are boring!

I paper pierced both the image and the sentiment for more effect. Image is coloured with water- colours, then added some depth with colour picked from shimmery gel pens, and tried to add some glaze with the pen.. but it decided it wanted a day off! Cake is shaded to give an impression of being very chocolatey :)

List of stash I used is not so specific, as DP and image have come from swap and BRAK,
white light blue and purple cardstock
bits from stash
fibres I recently bought from the Pound Shop
Papermania brads
White Ribbon
when friends meet.. sentiment is computer generated
Happy Birthday sentiment is hand- doodled.

thai is all .. and ... voila'!! Very chic! :)
