Friends

The current Stampotique challenge is bright colors. I've combined that challenge with the Three Muses challenge of warm colors, and the Tuesday Throwdown challenge of friendship.
I'm not sure what came over me today; fun things happen when you use Stampotique stamps. I picked up Heads and a thought popped into my head. I looked at the image and saw fingerprints. So I pulled out my bright Adirondack archival inks and started putting my fingerprints over the image to color the heads. I cut out the stamped and colored image and adhered it to a black panel for contrast. I stamped the Stampotique sentiment at the bottom of the panel with Perfect Pearl Medium and used Perfect Pearl Confections powder to color the letters. The top sentiment are sticker letters. I think you'll agree that my little friends card depicts lots of warm and bright colors.
