I used the same colored pencil technique from yesterday's post to make this Valentine card. I love how easy it is to deepen the interior of flowers to give them some dimension. I used the Whisper White cut-out from the Labels Collection frame used in yesterday's card to make the main panel on today's card. I stamped the flowers in Pink Pirouette and the leaves in Gumball Green using the masking technique to make the leaves appear behind the flower petals. After coloring the petals with pink colored pencils, pearls were added to the flower centers. I very lightly sponged So Saffron ink on the panel's edges. The hummingbird was stamped in Raspberry Ripple, and the panel was matted on the same color cardstock. This was trimmed to make a lovely framed border. This panel was popped up with dimensional popdots on the Whisper White cardbase. The cardbase has the beautiful Lacy Brocade embossed panel matted with Raspberry Ripple cardstock. The embossing texture was brought to life with a coloring of Pink Pirouette ink that was applied using a brayer. The edge of this background was very lightly sponged with So Saffron ink.
I hope that your Valentine's Day is filled with love and laughter!
