Love Is In The Air - Week 2: Cute Critters (Card 1 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. 

In My Heart

This little hedgie (Banner of Love - Penny Black) is so cute and can be colored quite quickly.  In this sample, the image was stamped once on the main panel of the card and a second impression on a separate piece cardstock. The hedgie standing on the pot was colored, fussy cut and added on top of the first impression with dimensional foam.  A bit of shading with Phthalo Blue Tint Pan Pastel adds an airy sky.

The sentiment (From the Heart - Penny Black) was nestled under the banner and close to the hedgie.

Artist Note:  Before coloring with Copics, I stamp my images in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat emboss with clear powder.

Have a colorful day,
