I bought this stamp to use for a couple of Valentine cards and then didn't - so it has been sitting on my desk since the end of January unused. I thought it would be perfect as it reminds me of a little kid offering his handmade Valentine to his mom.
The image is stamped on Whisper White in Black Stazon Ink and colored with Kohr-I-noor pencils and Gamsol. The DP is from SU! a retired pack called "Afternoon Tea". The flowers were created with a couple of punches and an embossing "punch" I picked up at the local craft store. The branches are made with the Martha Stewart branch punch. A few dots with a white gel pen and a couple of small half pearls in the center of the flowers finished the card.
Personally I love this card. The layout helps bring it all together and was from a wonderful sketch from the MOJO Monday blog. If you have trouble with design check out this blog. They offer up the best sketches I've seen anywhere.
I know this is the second post for the day - but I'm on a roll!!!! LOL! Seriously - this is the last one today I promise. If I make anything else I'll save it for tomorrow!
