For my King

Now just because I have pretty much denounced 
Valentine's Day as a whole, doesn't mean that I don't make
a card for my husband every year. He deserves it.

But like most things, I can't be serious.
I have no problem with being heartfelt, but it's gotta
make ya smile, too.

I just got some new Stampotique stamps, and since one of them
was the Daniel's Hearts stamp I thought it only fitting to use it
as a background for my V Day cards.

After stamping the hearts in a varied pattern, I used a
waterbrush and Distress Inks to paint them. I also added
splatters of white and black Dylusions ink to lend to the messy
watercolor painting.

Wolfie King kinda spoke to me and convinced me
he was perfect for my husband's kooky card.
I think he was right. Especially after coloring him
with Copics, adding Stickles to his star belt buckle, and 
topping off his crown with rhinestones. 
He is quite the stunner.   

I used my Dymo maker to make the sentiment, which is
a little inside joke. If you know me at all, you know I don't
suffer fools or weak men easily or at all. Nor am I one
to bow down to anyone, so this sentiment is completely dripping
in sarcasm. That being said, my husband is the closest thing ever to
a governing force of my fantastical realm. He pays the bills.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:


  1. Your card is awesome! The background is so neat, I think I need this stamp right now. I hope your king will like it.
