A Day in the Life: BFF Lunch

Hi All,

I was playing with my new images from InStyle Stamps, and I HAD to use one of the images from their "A Day in the Life" series!  These are sooooo much fun to colour, and you can make such an eye-catching image!  I chose to work with BFF Lunch this time, but you will be seeing others!

Here goes:

My card base is Basic Gray, followed by Whisper White and Basic Black layers.  Then, there is a Marigold Morning layer, which was embossd with the Cuttlebug Forest Branches folder.  All of the layers were punched with the Ticket Corner punch.  I added a row of silver brads at the bottom of that, using my mat pack and paper piercer.

For the main image, I printed it onto PTI White CS and coloured it with Copics, then I matted that layer with a Basic Black layer.  Underneath all the corners, I added black and white photo corners to make a kind of "frame" for the image.  The white photo corners were also embossed with the same CB folder.

These images are tons of fun, and I definitely recommend heading over to the store to choose one or two that strike your fancy!
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

***Check out THIS post from my fellow DT member Angela - I used some of the same colours as her and our images look kind of similar! Thanks for the inspiration Angela - I must have had your card in the back of my mind when I created this!

When I colored mine I thought of colors I see all the time in Asian restraunts. Looks like you did too!! From the dark wood wall and yellow wall, to the black leather chairs, the red table cloth and one I go to here has some orange laterns that hang down!! As these are the colors most of them have!! Thanks, but I didn't give you the inspiration... Asian restraunts did!! LOL!! Hope you are having a great weekend!! It is HOT here in Tennessee!!
