FMS172 & JUGS #279

February 8, 2015

Happy Sunday! :D
Today I'm sharing a card I made for the Fleshly Made Sketches #172 and the Just Us Girls Challenge #279 which theme is "Love".

I started with coloring my focal image, which is from the Furry Affection stamp set by Penny Black. I colored it with Copics and cut it out with a craft knife.

As they are holding an umbrella, I wanted to make a rainy-ish (Is this a word? LOL. I mean "not a real rainy scene") background for them. So I picked up the Large Dots stencil (SSS) and blended some Soft Pool ink and Pool ink (Hero Arts).

After I stamped a tail from the Perk Up set (MFT) in Hot Fudge Hybrid ink, I added two hearts that were die-cut with Blueprints 8 and Tag Builder Blueprints 3. They were slightly distressed with some Vintage Photo ink to match with my coloring on the umbrella. -- Just a little, but it did make a difference. If I had kept my coloring more simple and flat, I didn't need to do this.

The scalloped panels were cut from Sno Cone CS and Tropical Teal CS using Stitched Scallop Edges Die-namics, and I stamped the Sno Cone panel with the Diagonal Stripes BG. The sentiment is from the Talk Bubbles 2 set (SSS).

Thank you for stopping by!
