By Monica Edwards
This card was created using the following items: Chameleon Pens Bubble Gum PK3, Sky Blue BL3, Crimson Red RD4, Royal Blue BL6, Hot Cocoa BR2, Bark BR5, Bisque NU1 and Fawn NU3, Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink, Bazzill White Cardstock,Pink Paislee Patterned Paper, Tim Holtz Stamp Creative memories, Katie & Co Stamp Happy Valentines Day, Ribbon, Xyron – 150 Adhesive Runner.
First stamp the image and color the dress with PK3, BL3, RD4 and BL6.  Start off with straight color and then begin to blend by leaving the mixing chamber on the pen for about 10 seconds with each addition of color.
Then color her hair with BR2 and Br5.  BR2 was laid down first and then the mixing chamber was placed on the nib for  approximately 8 seconds before colouring in the highlighted areas, shadows were added using BR5.
Her skin was colored with NU1 and NU3.  NU1 is very similiar to E11 with copics it adds the nice dark tone to the skin when applied direct.  If you add the mixing chamber for 10 seconds you will get a nice E000 look, then continue, but decrease the time you hold the mixing chamber on the nib as you go, this will give you a nice even blend.
Use the Joy Craft Heart border for the side of the card and a Spellbinder oval diecut for the main image. A Joy Craft die cut was placed behind the oval, topped off with a Stampin Up diecut. Then layered with a simple straight square cut.
This card will certainly have the recipient floating on air, we will be bringing you more Valentines inspiration over the coming weeks so don’t forget to follow us with Bloglovin’ , just click the box to the right of this page, it is that simple!
