I Heart You

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day!!

Since it's Valentine's Day i'm sharing a love card i made for Essentials by Ellen February Mix It Up Challenge! The challenge is to use any Essentials by Ellen products and any Penny Black products, both together on one project! I used Ellen's Heart and Home die (the hearts) and stamps from I Heart You set from Penny Black. I am also entering this in Penny Black Saturday Challenge Use Hearts and/or Red!

I started by stamping Mimi holding a heart balloon on water color paper. Then i used my distress markers to color her, however this time i did it a little differently then i normally do. I usually add color with the marker and with a wet to damp brush push the color around, layering more colors or other colors as i go. But this time i didn;t add water, just colored with each marker. I did add water with the face, i use Tattered Rose for skin and it would be way to dark without the water!

Next i fussy cut around the top part of the image and trimmed the remaining to a rectangle and rounding the bottom corners. I found a die cut black stitched oval and i placed Mimi at the bottom of the oval.

For a sentiment i stamped I Heart You in white on black card stock, then trimmed it and rounded the bottom corners. then i just tucked it behind Mimi at her feet.

I picked out some pattern paper (Crate Paper - Kiss Kiss) and i cut a pretty flower pattern with a stitched rectangle. Then i picked out a pink pattern and a XOXO pattern, both die cutting them with the hearts from Ellen's Heart & Home die.

First i added the oval, Mimi and sentiment to the flower pattern paper. Then i adhered the hearts around Mimi. To add a little sparkle i used my Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to the dots in the balloon, bow and pink die cut hearts.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Happy Valentine's Day!!
