Love is in the Air

This week's challenge at LOTV is 'Love is in the Air', so I thought I would take the opportunity to break out a stamp that I ordered from them a little while ago, but hadn't got around to using just yet.

The Papertake challenge blog also had a nice sketch to follow this week so I thought I would use it for the layout of my card.

And finally, it 'Anything Goes' over at Peartree Designs, so this liilte baby is getting linked to that site as well.

Unusually for me, I have broken out of my mould and used a combination of Copics and Promarkers to colour the image. Now I know there's no reason why you can't do that, but for some reason I always feel like I shouldn't mix different brands of pens........guess I'm just not that adventurous! Glad that I have broken out of my box for this one though as I was struggling to find the right shade of pink in my Copics!

Also, and I don't know if it's come out clearly on the photo, I have used paperpiecing from one of the background papers to make the little girl's dress and bow. I really should do this more often as I really like the technique.

Anyway - that's enough waffle from me. I'm off to see if I can make another card tonight.....if I can keep my eyes open that is!

Thanks for looking.
