Love is in the Air...

Hi blogger friends...

Well unless you've been on another planet the last few days then you'll know that Love is definitely in the air!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I've made my Hubby a Valentine's Day card using one of Mo Manning's fabulous images. I bought quite a few before Christmas, but never got round to using them (Shh Don't tell him!). This one is called 'Ragged Romance'

I've used some lovely Pion papers which I bought recently (Rose Frame & Homing Pigeons). I'd seen lots of beautiful creations made with them and I just couldn't resist (hehe) They're even prettier in real life - I'll definitely be buying more.

The image is coloured with my usual Copics. Here's a closer look.

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, R21
Boys Hair: E70, E71, E74, E77, E79
Girls Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57
Beige: E40, E41, E42, E43
Peachy Pink: R20, R21, R22, R24
Grey: C0, C1, C3, C5
Boots: E70, E71, E74
Shadow: W00, W0, W1, W3

The inside of the card has been decorated with the same Pion papers and has some cute cherubs, so appropriate for Valentine's.

I've used a number of dies to embellish the card along, with some rhinestone lace and seam binding from Live and Love Crafts.

The dies used are:-
DooHickey: So wrapped lovely heart, Leaf & Swirl, Heart swirl branch.
Marianne Designs: English Rose, Lamp &Leaf
Memory Box: Small Pinwheel Posie
