Life in Nothing without Friendship - SDC29

This weeks at the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog, Kim gave us this sketch to work with.  I think sketch challenges are my all time favorite of challenges, as part of the design process is already done for me.  I just need to pick my papers and stamps, and off I go to create! 

I used the cute 3 Girls image as the focus for my card.  I had originally created this beautiful brayered scene (3 different times actually), but when I went to add my stamped image, it didn't want to take to the Matte Coated card stock.  I had splotches in areas, so I had to scrap the idea, and change card stock.  Smooth card stock would not let me move the inks for brayering, so I used a Calypso K-Pad and the Spectrum Roll Technique to add color.  I normally don't like to do this tech on Smooth card stock either, but I was determined to use this image.
