Fabulous Friend

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Best Friends Stamp Set from Clearly Besotted, along with one of my favourite ever sentiment sets - A Little Sentimental. I had a piece of alcohol ink background left over from a previous card and I thought the shark and fish image would work perfectly for it.

I started off by stamping the shark and fish image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to white cardstock. I coloured the image in using Copic Markers and then fussy cut out with scissors (there are coordinating dies but I do not have them). I then added white gel pen dots to their eyes and glitter pen to the fish's fins.
I had a piece of alcohol inked background that I had used on this card left over and I really wanted to use it somehow. The piece was made by adding three shades of alcohol ink to Yupo Paper to create an ombre look. I used Aqua, Pool and Sail Boat Blue. I took an 4" x 5.25" white card base and added this strip on to the right hand side with tape runner. I then took a panel of white cardstock and cut it using one of the MFT Stitched Scallop Edges dies. Because I wanted to the edge to be the opposite way of the die, I just used the negative piece of the die and not the positive. This way I ended up with inverted scallops without the stitching but I still think it looks nice! This was added flat to the left side of the card with tape runner.
I stamped the 'fabulous friend' sentiment from the A Little Sentimental set and stamped this on to a piece of white cardstock with more Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. It was cut out using one of the MFT Stitched Rectangle Window Dies (again I used it the opposite way around, so I do not have the stitching detail). I added this to the card base with foam tape and then added the shark and fish above with more foam tape. To finish off, I added Lucy's Cards Ice Cube Jewels around the image.

  1. I am so glad you put that remaining alcohol piece to work Michelle and it goes perfectly with this card! Your colouring of the two friends is fabulous as always and what a clever idea to use the inverted edge, as it looks like teeny tiny shark teeth! 💕

  2. Love this super cute card Michelle!
