We are starting a New Challenge over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog this week and its ANYTHING GOES!! =) I CAN'T wait to see what you create!!
I thought it would be FUN to create a SPECIAL Valentine's Day Card for my Mother!! I wanted her to know How MUCH I LOVE her and I decided to use SEVERAL Paper Smooches Products to create my card!! I've used the Paper Smooches Lovely Thoughts, Lots of Love Stamp Sets, and the Squared Die, Roses Dies, Heart Dies, Always & Forever Dies!!
I die cut my Rose and then used the Lovely Thoughts stamp set to add some highlights to my Rose!! These aren't actually sized to be used together, but when I was playing around I realized that the Stamps were actually just the PERFECT size for the Highlights so I used some White Hero Arts Ink and stamped the highlights!! Then I took a Colored Pencil and added a Darker Pink color then blended it all together using some Gamsol!! I then colored over just the Highlight spots with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker to add even more light to those areas!! I LOVE the look it gives to the Die Cut Rose and Leaves!! I then stamped and embossed my sentiment and then layered the Forever Die Cut for a shadow!! I added a few Hearts and Sequins and my Card was done!! =)
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you had a FABULOUS VALENTINE'S DAY WEEKEND!! =)
