friends {Scrapy Land #40}

It's already the third Wednesday of the month and time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge.  The theme for this challenge is Think Spring, plus use any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  Spring is definitely underway here in the South and everything is blooming and everyone is sprucing up their yards.

I used two different Die-Versions dies, the new Curly Words - friends die and lots of the elements from the Garden Gazebo die:

The image is a digi image from Make It Crafty (Girls Secret Swing).  I created the background and colored the image with Copic markers.

All of the elements from the Garden Gazebo die were colored with Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.  Clear Sparkle marker was used on the friends die cut, although the camera didn't pick it up very well.

I also die cut the friends sentiment four times and adhered the layers to each other to create a thicker sentiment.  Normally, I use fun foam for added dimension but I wanted it to be even thicker.

Be sure to visit the Scrapy Land Challenge blog to see what the rest of this amazing team has created for you.  You'll have until Sunday, May 1 to upload your Spring inspired project.  The winner, chosen by the design team, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.
