A friend like you...

Hello again!

Yesterday I shared my card using the lovely Gemini gals in all their zodiac glory and today I have a different version of the stamp that didn't require any fancy altering to achieve. To take this stamp away from the idea of representing twins all I had to do was choose different color palettes for each girl, turning them into best friends instead. This simple coloring transformation of Gemini is something anyone can do. As I colored them up, in their pretty cocktail dresses, I imagined these two attending a fancy garden party. So I masked them off and added the Garden Backdrop stamp behind them to help set the scene, talk about a quick and easy way to start bringing this whole design together. I just colored in the sky and ground as well as some extra rose bushes and this card was done. Ummm... where can I get an invite to this posh garden party? LOL! ;)
I'm also entering this into the June Bellariffic Challenge which is "flora and fauna" themed.
