This card is being entered into two challenges which work quite well together. The Stampsmith challenge is friends/friendship. My main image is from the Stamp sheet Darling Boys. I think the image is so adorable. It is colored using markers. The background technique is the Try That Technique challenge from Technique Junkies. It's called Sanded Whitewash and is from the Aug/Sep 2009 TJ newsletter. The embossing folder is one of Cuttlebugs larger folders. I used light teal cardstock under the gesso. The image fit so perfectly into the open space of the embossing.
