Evening all, happy Saturday to you & to those of you who are loved up, Happy Valentine’s Day. That will be my final mention of this Hallmark-created excuse for massively inflating the price of roses!! Cynic, moi??!! 🙂
Today I have been mostly talking on the ‘phone, (big shout out to Kelly & Jen), watching tv, (has anyone seen ‘Miami Ink’ on DMAX? It’s about a tattoo shop in Miami. The guy who owns the shop is called Ami James – VERY sexy is all I will say! Apart from the hot guys & the beautiful women the tattoos are incredible. They really are works of art.), & I made one card. I’ll show it to you tomorrow.
For today’s card I used this sketch from the current Magnolia v Stampavie challenge.
I decided to keep it very simple & stick firmly to the sketch, this is what I came up with. I haven’t made up my mind about a sentiment yet, but I think it will be an Easter card. I’m enjoying using pastel colours at the moment, I think it’s a reaction to the horrible winter weather! I coloured Tilda with Whispers pens first, then chose the other elements to suit the image – which I think they do. The flowers Tilda is holding remind me of daffodils, so I used layers of yellow to try to make them as bright as possible. I doodled the little swirls around the edge of the image with a gold pen.
- Papers – Papermania Sweet Nothings, DCWV, Basic Grey Sugared collection, gold paper from my stash.
- Ribbon – Crafty Ribbons
- Yellow paper lace – from my stash
- Whispers pens
- Pink butterfly gem – from my stash
So, what do you think? Was I right to keep it simple or should I add something? I’m thinking of placing the sentiment on the left side of the spotted paper & perhaps that’s enough.
That’s all from me for now. Enjoy the rest of your weekend & thank you to everyone who has visited my blog & left comments in the last twenty-four hours.
Love & light.
