Today is the start of a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter and the theme is "Be My Valentine"
I have chosen to use an image called Love in Venice.
My main reason for picking this is because we have been talking about having a "Minimoon" for a few days straight after our wedding and top of the list at the moment is Venice. Its a place I have always wanted to go and the pictures of it look wonderful!
To make this card I covered the base with wood effect paper from Crate Paper DIY Shop. I cut a panel from the zigzag paper and also the Polaroid shape which are both from Simple Stories I heart Summer. I use some heart ribbon from my stash across the bottom and a tiny scrap of yellow ribbon from American Crafts which I attached a Red Hobbycraft heart gem on to. I dies cut three hearts from red Bazzill card and little strip of yellow hearts. The greeting is a sticker from My Minds Eye Necessities.
I used gold pen to add some detail to the digi image and also some white pen to the water. Finally I gave the water a little sparkle with a white Wink of Stella pen.
I used these Promarkers & Flexmarkers to colour the image -
Skin - Antique white, Blush, Soft Peach, Coral & Spice.
His Hair - Burnt Sienna, Henna & Walnut
Her Hair - Buttercup, Pineapple crush, Sleigh Bells & Raw Sienna.
Red Clothing - Poppy, Ruby & Burgandy
