Showering you with love
With Valentine's just around the corner I thought it was time for a LOVEly card. I got my DT package from sweetpea the other day and here is one of the stamps I chose to play with. Aren't they adorable? The stamp is one of four from plate 102 designed by Elaine Cox.
Both patterned papers are from Basic Grey's bittersweet line. The brown paper was perfect to use with the bears. The image is coloured with promarkers. I used cottoncandy glitterglue on the hearts and when they were dry I put some dimensional glaze on them. I went over with a clear sakura glitterpen on the bears' wings and cloud. The hears are cut out using scalloped hearts nesties. I dryembossed the biggest heart and inked all of the hearts with a brown distress ink. The edges are made with a Martha Stewart doily hearts border punch. Finally I handwrote the sentiment and added some glitter on it aswell. I'm trying to use my handwriting so I will like it when I start journaling in scrapbooking. I must say it's growing on me...
