Sweet Valentine

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so I used a stamp I've had for awhile to make a card for my daughter.

The image is colored with Copics and I used a white gel pen to add highlights to the cherries/hearts. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the card design, substituting the flourish die cut for one of the fishtail banners. The flourish is covered with Diamond Stickles, but it's hard to see here. It's more visible in the banner at the top of the post. The "dots" are enamel dots, rhinestones, and melted beads. On the distressed rectangle die cut, I sponged Picked Raspberry ink around the edges and stamped a news print stamp in Dried Marigold ink while it was still in the die.
The inside of the card uses a similar distressed rectangle, with the sentiment and conversation hearts stamps coming from an old Hero Arts stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
