Love Is In The Air - Week 2: Cute Critters (Card 2 of 3)

A whole month to share all the love that is in the air!  

During January, I will be featuring posts celebrating hugs, kisses, and Valentine wishes.

This week's focus is on cute critters. 


This stamp image titled "From Me to You" (Penny Black) could not be more appropriately named.  Perfect for sending love anytime during the year. 

The focal panel of the card was stamped with the image in Onyx Black Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder. Highlighting with Phthalo Blue Tint PanPastel and the coloring of images that would not be covered with elevated images were completed first.

Another impression of the image was made on a separate piece of cardstock.  The hedgie on the flower and the mouse were colored and fussy cut to create dimensional elements.

After the artwork was completed, the piece was matted with red cardstock and attached to a white card base with dimensional foam.

For the cute "xo" banner, a thin strip of red cardstock was stamped with the letters (Ooh La La - Penny Black) in VersaMark Watermark ink and heat embossed with white powder.

Lots of happy from ME to YOU....
