It's challenge time over a Creatalicious Challenges again and this month we are celebrating love! "Love is in the air..... Just yesterday we had Valentine's Day and I dare you to create a beautiful piece about LOVE! That includes weddings, hearts, cupids and everything that makes you think about this warm feeling."
This month is sponsored by StampFairy who are kindly giving one looking winner a $10 Gift Certificate to be used in their store.
For my card I have used the very cute StampFairy digital stamps Barry Angel in Love and the sentiment is from Stuffed with Love.
I printed him out on some X-Press It blending card and then die cut it using Spellbinders Labels Fifteen. After I coloured him with my Copics, I placed the die back onto the cut out and sponged some SU! Crumb Cake ink around the image with my Inkssentials blending tool and foam. I love the effect it gives!
The aqua coloured paper and the piece with the sentiment is from a Kaisercraft Homemade Collection 6" paper pad and the pretty pink paper is from a Prima Fairy Belle Collection " paper pad. I used the MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax for the banners down the bottom. I purchased the doily from a discount homewares shop. They came in a pack of 100 for only $3.95, so I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of them! :)
The ribbon is SU! Crumb Cake seam binding. Tip- I love the look and feel of seam binding but I don't really like how you can see through it when you lay it on the card. To fix this, I layer two pieces on top of each other. Problem fixed!
Here's another angle-
Did you know that Creatalicious Challenges is now offering fortnightly challenges instead of just once a month? So, now you can can have twice the fun playing along with us! Challenges are posted on the 1st, a colour palette challenge and the 15th, a theme challenge. Both challenges will go for a month each, so there's plenty of time to play along :)
