Happy Heart Day everyone!

>> Sunday, February 14, 2010

I hope everyone has had a truly wonderful valentine's day! I actually do have a card for you today! It's the card i made for my hubster. He giggled when he opened it and said, I love my cards from you! And he truly does. he has each and every one of them on display in his office. I've taken over a whole shelf! haha!

So how was everyone's valentine's day?
Mine has been very low key with a lot of lazy around the houseness. :) Gabe has had a prett gnarly cold so we didnt even go to church this morning. It isnt anything too major, but i wouldnt want to get anyone else sick. And i did take the time to dye my hair! I picked a new shade (ok, so it will look the same to most, but i notice it!) and i'm loving the new shade. it works well against my skintone. Tomorrow is Family Day in Canada and since we are half canadian in our house, i'll be taking the day off to do more fun fam stuff. perhaps i'll have a photo op with my newly dyed hair!

Here's my card using a hodgepodge of stamps... but the largest image is from The Greeting Farm.

I put my card together a little quickly. I have had the image colored for some time, but just hadnt gotten to the card yet. The black striped paper was a leftover scrap on my table from my Moody for Rock card i made earlier in the week. It just fit perfect for the card so i thought, woohoo! The red triangle is also a scrap. I took my favorite heart from the You've Got Mail set from My Time Made Easy and stamped it to mimic the bandanna on the monkey's head. :)
The sentiment is from a studio G dollar set that i've sort of horded away. I stamped the heart again in red ink (without cleaning it off well, bad me). but my booboo of not cleaning it well gave the heart a little bit of shading. haha! here are some close up views...

And here's another fun detail show... it's hard to see in the photos, but it really makes the image pop on the card. After cutting out the monkey image with my standard rectangle nesties, i used my copic airbrush and a light grey marker to give it a little depth. My image was already colored when i did this and didnt affect the coloring at all. My advice is to just stick to airbrushing the edges and you'll be fine. :)

Well i hope everyone had a fantabulous day today!
