Happy Love Day!

Happy Monday and Happy Valentine's Day! Do you have any fabulous plans? I'd love to hear!


Just sharing one more Valentine using a stamp from Penny Black called Hedgehog Kisses. My friend Ashley, formerly on the Penny Black design team, shared a coloring technique using distress inks and daubers.

I don't own any daubers and my LSS was out of them, so I used what I had--my ink blending tools and Fantastix for the cheeks and feet blush. The hedgies were colored with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain, Fired Brick for the balloons, and I used some make up blush for the cheeks and feet.

The background was stamped with Hero Arts' Large Canvas Stripes, and the ticket is from Purple Onion Designs. The "xoxo" is also by Hero Arts.

I loved using this technique--thanks, Ashley! It made for quick coloring and gave my Copics a little break.

Hope you all have a love-ly Valentine's Day! XOXO to you for stopping by today...

Stamps: Penny Black, Hero Arts, Purple Onion Designs
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Paper Accents kraft
Ink: Memento, Papertrey Ink, Ranger Distress inks
Other: Ribbon, pop dots, twine, Signo pigment pen
