A Friend Who Reads



I just finished putting this card together, and I confess - I did squeal just a little bit when it was done. LOL I loved paper piecing this image from MFT called Well Read. I am always reading and this stamp set just called to me as soon as I saw it.

The Technostamper sketch for this week was perfect for this image. I used some October Afternoon papers for all the piecing, and I colored that little bit of cotton twine with a beige Copic marker. The embossed panel behind the couch reminded me of wallpaper - too perfect!

Tomorrow is Friday - yay!

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa
CS: Vanilla
DP: Fly a Kite from October Afternoon
