Kadoodle Friends

A card for The Cute Card Thursday challenge and the challenge is 'the two of us'.

Kadoodle James and Zack is stamped in Versafine ink and water coloured with Ranger distress inks. I've tried to give the impression of camo style material on his trousers by dropping in shabby shutters, peeled paint and tea dye on to a wet background of scattered straw. I did a wash background of weathered wood and then sponged around the edges with black soot. The image is mounted on Aubergine Bazzil with dimension tape over the background of Upsy Daisy Designs 'Apple Sauce' paper which is from my Kadoodle DT pack. All the little sentiments are from a Cuttlebug embossing folder that my friend Tania sent to me (Thanks very much Tania), I embossed white card, swiped over with aubergine and black ink. I tore out the words, sponged them all with the two inks and attached with little brads. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
