Lexi’s Creations #83 Love/Valentine

Today at Lexi’s Creations we want to see your projects with a Valentine/Love theme in mind.

We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen with a £10 gift voucher for her store.

As I don’t have anyone to send a valentine too {Everyone say Ahhhhhhhhh!} I have made the card below because it could also be used as a birthday card, which is in fact where it will end up!

83 Valentine

The image from LOTV is called Anniversary Surprise. I coloured it with copics. The papers are also from LOTV from the Nitwit paper pad called Promises. I usually pick my papers and then try to colour to match, but I had already coloured this image when the papers arrived. I was pleasantly surprised that the colours I hit on by accident matched one of the papers in the pad so well.


The ribbon is a row of hearts I coloured with copics on the wrong side so that when I flipped it round the right way it left a mottled/variegated effect. The mat is Spellbinders Decorative Labels One and the branch is from Memory Box, called Lavish Branch. I trimmed off the tiny blossoms that were also on the die and replaced them with crystal hearts.

I am entering this into the following challenges:-
