Be My Valentine

Happy Monday


Pink Elephant Day!

This week is a theme challenge:

Happy Valentine's Day

We are down to the wire for completing all those Valentine cards and projects!

Here is my inspirational card:

STAMPS:  Image (My Favorite Things); Sentiment (Taylored Expressions).
PAPER: Fushcia, white cardstock; DP - homemade patterned paper.
INK: Lady Rose (Memento); Copics.
EXTRAS: Heart punch (EK Success); Label (Taylored Expressions); Plastic heart stickers; pink heart gems.

I did some paper piecing again.  I pieced the dress on the image with the same patterned paper as the foreground paper.  Last week I tried a new technique --- the shaving cream technique.  I love the results I got!  I got about four small rectangles and about four small tags out of it!  I used rainbow colors and so I had a great piece with lots of reds and pinks.  If you haven't tried this technique before, you can see a tutorial here.

 For Following Challenges:

So stop by The Pink Elephant Challenge, check out the other DT projects, leave them some blog luv and then share your Valentines with us!

Valentine Blessings!
