Love Is In The Air


Hi folks - I'm sending you all some LOVE with this card today!!

Oh, and it's going into a few challenges too . . .!

First of all I am following the sketch at Midnight Madness, and another lovely one it is too - they have some humungus giveaways there at the moment!!

Next at La-La-Land, there is a collection of themes running - I hope I have got them all: 2 patterned papers (I know it's not clear, but the vellum behind the heart has a faint pattern on it of some swirls), colours red, brown and cream (yep), embossing (yep - the frame is embossed, and so is the heart), scallops (yep, the frame is scalloped), piercing (yep - did that round the heart). Hope that's all of them?

Next up at Digital Tuesday they want to send some 'love' with hearts, and a digital image - yep got those.

And then at Polka Doodles they want digital image colouring - oh yes! That's what I do!! This lovely image was designed by Kathy at Stitchy Stamps over in the Digital Ink Co. shop. Gorgeous isn't it? I coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, and did a little extra layer with foam pads for some added dimension.




Here is the heart in close-up, with the piercing and some beads on a wire that I bent to look like an arrow. You can hardly see the vellum pattern here either, oh well, I'll have to choose some stronger patterns next time. Now I remember why I don't use vellum much!! LOL
