Valentine's Love

I finally finished this card today. I started it at the weekend & got a bit stuck with it running out of Kraft Card then other things took over but it is done at last.

The sketch is one from Sweet Sketch Wednesday last year that I decided to re-use. I have oloured the image with Promarkers, distressed the edges with a sanding tool & inks & added pearls & swirls. The Love & Heart are a Sizzix die that I have been using this week thanks to Hobbycraft.

Here is a close up of the image. Isn't it adorable. I added spots to the dress of the little girl using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I used the sketch on the base of the card too adding some extra swirls & embellies.

I will have this card available to view at Hobbycraft in Harlow tomorrow when I am there demonstrating a selection of Valentines Cards x Clare x
