Divine and Mine!

I hope everyone is having a good weekend. Our weather continues to be very cold...I can't believe Valentines Day is almost here. Seems like it was just Christmas. I hope spring and warm weather come as quickly.

I have Valentine Card today. The sentiments on this card are computer generated. They were inspired by a wall hanging my daughter bought for our last wedding aniversary.

The main image is a High Hopes Stamp called "Snuggle Lions". Don't they look in love? You can find this stamp by clicking right here.

I combined 3 challenges on this card....a first for me......the SC160 sketch, WT150 ways to use it and the CC150 color challenge. It was fun!

The border was made with the Fiskars punch. This is the first time I used it...great punch!!

Prismacolor Pencils, Twinkling H20's and acrylic paint (accents) were used to color the image.

Stamps: High Hopes "Snuggle Lions"

Paper: whisper white, blue bayou, soft sky, costco red

Ink: versafine black, blue bayou, soft sky, real red, close to cocoa, creamy caramel

Accessories: ribbon, bling, stitching, stickles, stardust pen

Techniques: prismacolor pencils, watercoloring, acrylic paint

Have a Great Day! and Thanks for looking!!!

Thanks for your kind comments on my
site, Ila. I do remember those days, scarey isn't it? Although our hippy days were more into drag racing events, and then belonging to a Van club. Did lots of travelling in those days. Still had the long hair and flowered shirts though. LOL
