I bought the Gina K Wreath Builder template a while back and thought it would be fun to use for a valentine. Instead of rotating an 1/8th of a turn each time, I skipped and did quarter turns. I started by stamping the cute birds from Photoplay Thinking of You. Then, in the areas in between the birds, I used the template again and stamped hearts and butterflies from a stamp set I received for Christmas (Inkblot Shop This & That). This card is for my mother-in-law and she loves birds and butterflies.
After coloring with Copic markers, I was very happy with the panel, but I wondered how it would look with the four corners clipped. I was a bit nervous but went ahead and loved the octagonal result. I mounted on a square 4\” x 4\” hot pink card base. I wanted a vintage feel like the small valentines we used to exchange as kids.
Copic colors used: RV 4, RV 23, Y06, Y08, R35 and BG11.
I am entering my valentine in the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and More Holiday Challenge This week I made two valentine\’s and Addicted so Stamps Holiday Challenge called to my designs.
Time Out Loving Challenge This week I was ready to work on Valentine\’s so the \”loving\” theme was perfect for me.
The Card Concept Pink Party Challenge I was inspired by the gorgeous hot pink, white and black color scheme and the butterflies on the table runner.
Thanks for stopping by!
