Childhood Friends

Last card for now :-) I love this one, I think it's cute.

It's a combo of a CAS Colours and Sketches layout, a colourQ palette and Simon Says Wednesday inspiration.

With the Clarity Coated stock still on the table, I chucked some colour at the cardstock with a brayer, and then used the clingfilm squidge technique to make the background. I used Distress Inks: Broken China, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, which I also used to enhance the three squares.

The images are Wee Folk by Clarity, as is the wordchain sentiment. The brown grosgrain ribbon came out of my bits and bobs box - wouldn't surprise me if it's upcycled from some old packaging.

colourQ #294: Soft Suede, Pool Party, Hello Honey, So Saffron, White
