FM230 - So lucky to call you my friend

You know I like mashing things up, right?  I haven't made any secret of that fact.  And then came along this challenge from the Friday Mashup and, quite honestly, I was left wondering what to do.  The challenge?

*create a project featuring doughnuts or baked goods
*create a project with a friendship theme
OR mash the two together and combine both themes

Well, I don't have a large doughnut stamp.  I do have some designer paper featuring doughnuts, however, and could imagine that as a strip somewhere on my card.  But I wanted a big doughtnut image.  So I delayed entering the challenge, knowing that my subconscious would work on the problem in the background.  It didn't let me down, either.  I love the way my subconscious works!

For my big image I used two of my circle framelits and cut out a "doughnut" from a piece of Kraft Paper.  Well, it really wasn't very thrilling.  It definitely needed a whole lot of loving attention.  So I cut another "doughnut" out of a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Then I tore all around the perimeter of the inside hole and the outside.  I set the poor ragged circle shape on a piece of waxed paper and, after stamping Watermelon Wonder and Daffodil Delight sprinkles on it thanks to the Sprinkles of Life stamp set, I covered the entire thing liberally with my Crystal Effects.

When that had dried I first used my Bone Folder and gave my Kraft Paper doughnut a bit more 3-D shaping.  Then I used Tombow glue to paste the shiny Crystal Effects "icing" onto the doughnut.  A bit of selective cutting to give the look of a bite into the doughnut and I was done.  

I hope you'll check out the Friday Mashup and the cards presented by the Design Team.
