Heartfelt wishes

Already time for another project for the I love promarkers challenge blog. This is my second to last week and the theme we have for you is "sweet and simple". I started out with a very simple idea; just plain squares and a monochromatic look. It was a bit too plain though so I distressed the edges and added a punched out border. I also coloured the polkadot ribbon with my promarkers to exactly match the colourscheme.

The stamp I used is from sweetpea stamps and is called one and only heart from plate 68. I used burgundy distress ink for the image's background. The girl is coloured in several red hues as there are no good that matched.  The colours I used were: ivory and blush for skin, dusky rose, ruby, burnt orange, burgundy, burnt umber, coral for dress and hair.
