Love Struck Cupid

Today's design team post with Craftin' Desert Divas celebrates the Pantone Color of the Year -Ultra Violet. Isn't it just the most gorgeous blue violet? 

Using both the sketch from Your Next Stamp and the Tic Tac Toe Challenge board (horizontal bottom row: Sparkle -Love -Free) as my inspiration, I will also be entering this card @ Crafty Cardmakers for "Bling's the Thing", @ Cuttlebug Mania for "Valentine's Day" and @ Simon Says for "Layer It Up".

I colored the CDD Love Struck Cupid digi stamp with Chameleon colored pencils and tried to shade a heart into her hair...not sure if you can see it is upside down. She is also covered in shimmer from a Wink of Stella pen, but the camera just doesn't do it justice! The details on her wings are done in white gel pen and offer a nice small touch of dimension when you see it in person.

The sentiment stamps I used on the inside of the card are both from the CDD Simply Said stamp set and stamped in black Versafine ink. The frame die cuts I used on both the front (in 2 sizes) and inside are from the CDD Crazy Stitched Frame die set...I love this die set and use it ALL the time! 

The "Hi" stamp comes from the CDD "Say It Big" stamp set. The pretty shooting stars silver foiled background paper gave the camera a fit when it came to focusing, but it's really very pretty when it catches the light! The tiny pink heart sequin I glued on as the dot for the letter "i" is from the CDD Cotton Candy sequin pack.

Until next time~
