ART FROM THE ROAD: Take a Word Challenge (02-05-17)

This is my second go-around with the Take a Word Challenge, and I am following their word theme of FRIENDS. 

This is a simple piece of art that I will add to a card blank and send off to a friend. I began with a scrap of paper mounted on black cardstock. I first stamped my focal image ("Little Friends" from Stampotique Originals) directly onto my scrap of paper. I also stamped it onto a second scrap of paper and cut it out. I needed something to anchor the friends so they didn't appear to be flying, so I used a partial strip of a sticky border (from Stick-A-Bilities) and placed it over their feet in the first image. I then adhered the second image over the first so their feet seem to be standing on the chevron border. The text strip (Tim Holtz' idea-ology "Small Talk") finished off the piece.

It seems that I like working with monochromatic colors so there may be a pattern evolving here!
