My valentine

Hi there!

Today the reminder challenge over at the Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge blog must be Anything Goes – Option : Valentine.

For my card I used Sherri Ann Baldy “IMG030” You can find it by clicking the image title.

I chose this image because to me, she looks like she’s dreaming. And who’s not dreaming of a Valentine? At the same time she’s looking sooo cute, I had to have a go at colouring her.

I loved colouring her, and I used the following Copic markers for the project:

Skin: E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Hair + eyes: E18, E15 and E13
Scarf:  YG17, G00 and R20
Blouse + bow on leg: R20 (shadows are multiple layers of R20)
Skirt: YG17, G00, R27 (roses) and R20
Shoes: C5, C3 and C1
Shadow beneath her: C2

There’s not that many colours in this image, and I’ve made it that way on purpose.

Since I thought this card had to be somewhat romantic, I’ve kept the backgrounds in red nuances and some years ago I bought the paper with the flower hearts on, some of which is sparkling. I think it’s just right for this image. I’ve added a sparkling heart to the corner of the image in the same colour as its Bordeaux backing paper.

The two texts I made myself, printed them and glued them on the Bordeaux backing paper as well.  

I hope you like my card. Feel free to leave a message to let me know. Please join my blog if you would like to see my projects on a regular basis.

Be Happy Crafting!
