A Friend is a Friend
From the Muppets:
"Well, a friend never bends or pretends when a friend is in need. So depend on a friend who's a friend to his friend indeed. No a friend never bends or pretends when a friend is in need so depend on friend who's a friend indeed."
The talented Chunyuan from Dahlia Memories has delightfully joined me today in a Carbon Copied post! We are featuring Papertrey Ink's Modern Basics and participating in the Embellish Magazine's Color Trends Challenge: Leaves.
I wanted to try out mists on kraft paper again, and kind of do a play on opposites, so I sprayed a kraft panel with green and then mounted that to a kraft card base. Then, on a scrap strip of paper I stamped the leaves in the purple/red and blue color. After that was attached to the card with dimensional adhesive, I wrapped the piece with some string to give it a more natural feel, it just seemed to provide another contrasting element.
I am super excited to see what Chunyuan has, as I mentioned before she is wildly talented. Her designs are always so fresh and clean which is why I'm so inspired by her work. Please pop on by Dahlia Memories if you haven't done so already!
