DV #148 All About Love

I can’t believe we are three weeks into the New Year and already thinking about a date in February! I swear the older you get the faster the time spins past.

Anyhow our challenge at Dream Valley today is All About Love. We are sponsored by Pink Gem Designs and I chose to use Chloe With Daisy for my ‘love’ themed card.

148 All About Love

I coloured her with copics and prisma pencils, and used a sharpie white pen for highlights in her hair and to make the butterflies pop a little in her hair.

My frame was created by cutting an oval from the centre of a previously embossed piece which I had embossed in white, with Sue Wilson’s Noble Oval dies. I coloured the white embossed hearts with Dr. PH Martin’s Bombay Inks with a colour I made myself by mixing a blue green, blue and white together. I also die cut an oval out of purple mirri, which I then used to cut the Valentine message from as well.

The background paper is from Craftwork Card’s Refresher pad, one of my favourite pads because the colours are so fresh and zingy and remind me of the way those Refresher chews taste when the sherbet explodes on your tongue!

I edged both the frame and BP with glamour dust and then added three dragonflies cut from another pattern in the Refresher pad, and glamour dusted them also.
