It is a little outside my comfort zone in that I have used a stamped image that I have coloured with promarkers, I am still very much a beginner when it comes to colouring and getting the shading right but I do have fun trying. The image is one from the Sarah Kay collection and is called first Kiss which I thought was entirely appropriate for a Valentine's Card.
The backing paper was free with the latest edition of Making Cards Magazine and I love the patchwork feel to it. I simply mounted this onto red card stock and attached it to a base card.
Once I had coloured the image I used an x-cut label die to cut out the shape and mounted this onto red card and then used very fine scissors to trim it to leave a very narrow border.
The doily is one from a pack from my local craft shop and the heart motif is plastic and started life as cream which I coloured with a pro-marker and then coloured the word Love in black to make it stand out.
The flowers are a mixture of white roses and red poppies from Wild Orchid Crafts and red roses from the Papermania range, the little heart charm is recycled from some old jewellery and the bow was tied using a glitter girls bow maker and some ribbon from a recent prize I won from simply cards and paper craft.
I finished off the card by adding some adhesive pearls to the corner.
I would like to wish all the team at http://diecutdreams.blogspot.com good luck in the future and I will really miss them.
