Blooming hearts

I coloured my little fingers to the bone this past weekend and thought I'd spend this week highlighting some Valentine's Day cards. I'm way ahead of the game too so if something catches your eye you will have plenty of time to add some rubber to your collection and get that card made before the big day!

I'm gonna start off with Heart Garden by Stamping Bella (of course!).

I stamped it on bella's BESTEST paper (of course!) and coloured with copic markers (of course!). Pairing it up with the Basic Grey Infuse paper gave it a nice vintage feel so I sponged the edges with Distress Ink in antique linen and some tattered rose. I also added some tattered rose to the pink Bazzil paper just to tone it down a bit. I LOVE the way distress ink sponges on the textured paper.

I didn't write down the colours I used but if you read my blog often you could probably guess I used G40, 12 and 24 for the green hearts and most likely R20, 22, 24 for the reds! I do remember that I wanted to tone down the reds a bit so gave it an initial base layer of E0000. And shocking, but I only used pencils for shading around the pencils on those hearts.

Wednesday I'll be back with something a little fun and funky and most definitely not your typical pink and gushy Valentine's Day card! Hope to see you then!

Great Valentine's Card.... Great minds must think alike because I did a ton of colouring the past weekend.
