Love gives you wings!

Hello my fellow crafters!  Are you almost ready for Valentine's Day???  We don't make it a big holiday at our house but I always get my kids and hubby a little something.  Just a reminder of how much I love them every day!  I also try to make them cards so today's project will probably end up being for one of my kids.

I know that when we think of Valentine's colors red, pink and white are pretty dominant.  I found a heart patterned paper from Kitten Smitten by Doodlebug that I fell in love with so I just let it guide me into what colors I should use. I am very happy with the way it turned out and might just be perfect for my son.  Not too girly and all that!

I lined up the winged hearts from Valentine Accessories and printed them out on some Neenah 110lb Solar white paper.  I didn't make the hearts very large becuase I wanted to have several on the card.  I brought out my Copics but limited each heart to only two different shades.  I added a bit of gray to the wings and blended it out with the colorless blender.  I also used the colorless blender on the hearts to add a highlight area that I also went over with a white gel pen.  And we all know that wings aren't complete unless they have sparkle!  I used my Spectrum Noir glitter marker to add that shimmer that I just can't get enough of.  I finished the card off with a sentiment from the Say It Big set embossed in silver.

Thank for stopping by!
