I am actually starting to get into the whole Valentine thing.
Maybe it has something to do with the fabulous images from
Or maybe it's the awesome digital papers from
Either way, I made a really cute card using bits from both places.
Rio is one of the Valentine Emos over at Simply Betty Stamps.
LOVE the tongue hangin' out!
Notice that skully background paper? It is just one of six cool designs
in a digi set called, "Skullentine", from Crafty Chaos Designs.
I got a little fancy and broke out with the fleurs and then I added
heart eyelets to the centers and then added a rhinestone to the center of the eyelet.
I am not a "lacey" kinda gal and as a result I don't have much lace
lying around to use on my cards. I did see a technique on a friend's
blog where she used her lace punch on some card stock and
then crumpled it up giving the impression of ruffled lace.
I think it worked.
Nothing special with the coloring. Same ol' same ol'.
I used Copics and I tried to match that funky green heart color to the
actual color that comes in the box of those Conversation Hearts.
I think I came pretty close.
Thanks for dropping by. I'll be back with more coolness tomorrow.
