Very little is needed to make a happy life

Okay, maybe lots is needed to make a happy life but for Tom Allen's Friendly Kritters, They don't need a lot! I used Tom Allen's Friends Don't Mind for the sketch 209 which i combined with the ways to use it 199 (use silver).

I also used all Helmar Adhesives on my card too. Of course I used two of my favorite Helmar Adhesives; Liquid Scrap Dots and V2 Vellum Adhesive. I used Helmar's Quick Fix Adhesive Runner to tape all the other pieces of the cards down.

Image is colored with Prismacolor Markers. Cloud stencil was used for the sky. White gel pen was used on the skunk to highlight the white. Used a black marker around the image to give the look of being layered on black cardstock. Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots were used to hold the image down. See picture below to see a close up of the liquid scrap dots.

The V2 Vellum Adhesive (it's a spray) was used on the vellum sentiment that came from ScrapEssentials Emotions. The dsp is from the only value pack I have... ready for it?? DCWV The CHRISTMAS Stack!! Yup, I used Christmas design paper on the card. You never would have known, would you? Silver brads added to the corner for the Silver in the Ways to Use challenge. Notched the edges of the very last pink layer.

stamp: Tom Allen's Friends Don't Mind - CHF; paper: misc green/pink, DCWV The Christmas Stack; ink: Black Stazon; accs: prismacolor markers, brads, cloud stencil, helmar v2 vellum adhesive, liquid scrap dots & quick fix runner adhesive
