Little Tangles Challenge #6 - Valentine's/Love


Hi!

Welcome to Little Tangles Challenge #6!  This week we want you to make Valentine's or Love cards.  Here's what I came up with:


I used the Fresh Blooms set.  This set doesn't have a heart, but it does have a couple flourishes that you can use as trails for the ladybug and bee images.  I used one of them to to create the heart using the mirror stamping technique.  Since it often takes me a couple tries before I get something right, I had an extra image, so I cut out the center of that image to use as a mask and I sponged color onto the heart.

Then I added the ladybug and finished it off with some glossy accents.



Some of my favorite May Arts ribbon and a couple Little Yellow Bicycle picks (which I colored with Spectrum Noir markers to alter the color slightly - one was orange and the other hot pink) finish it off.



Now it's your turn.  We've had some amazing entries to our challenges and I can't wait to see what you create!

Supplies Used
Paper/Cardstock:  CTMH - White Daisy and Black cardstock
Stamps:  Neat and Tangled - Fresh Blooms
Ink:  CTMH - Ruby, Holkiday Red and Black
Other:  May Arts - Black Chevron Twill trim; Little Yellow Bicycle - Hello Spring Picks; CTMH - Dimensional Foam Tape, Sponge Dauber, and Liquid Glass; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
