Love Is In The Air

Good Morning all,

Wow!! Can you believe it's February already? It's amazing time is going by so fast. And with a before Valentine's Day we have a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes with 
"Love Is In The Air", yep that's our new theme.

So here is my take on the theme.  I used an image from the Stitchy Bear Stamps Shop, by Stitchy Bear - Love .  I also used some of the items I received from Scraps Of Elegance January Kit. I just love their kits, they are so fun and filled with beautiful paper and goodies.

I cut out the frame first with Spellbinders die - majestic labels twenty-five, leaving a
little tab that is folded down behind the frame. I cut out the design paper to the fit the 
size of my card/frame and adhered the design paper on the back of the tab. 
This is what gave me framed look of the around my image.
I fussy cut the hanging hearts from the paper and used stickles around the hearts and envelope.
The little blue flowers are from Heartfelt Creations - Stripped Sun Kiss colored with
light blue gelatos and filled with white prills.

For my image I layered it twice. I printed off on regular white cardstock and then
I printed it off on the pink patterned paper. 
The design paper I used is from Blue Fern - Blush paper collection, the two sheets
 I used to make this card is Enamored & Sweetheart.
Once I cut and colored everything I layed out my image and used pop dots
to give it a 3D effect.

 Here I colored with my copic markers. I used white flower soft
to achieve a fur look to her coat. It reminded
me of the old vintage coats that had fur on them. 
I also printed the man & woman image a third time
to enlarged the size so it would match the same 
size of the Love sentiment.
