First up, a sweet and feminine card:
It's funny, my favourite colour is red, red is the colour most associated with Valentine's Day, but I have yet to make a valentine with red this year. This one is in pastel shades of pink and mauve, with some purple hemp cord, silver embossing, and a black "please". The hearts flanking the please, plus a few random hearts in the background, are sparkled up with Wink of Stella marker. The embossing shows up a bit more in the close-up below.
With the hearts and big sentiment, I am entering this card into the current Quirky Crafts challenge: Love is in the Air; and Stamplorations: "Love and Hearts".
Next up, perhaps the more challenging card of the two... one for a ten-year-old boy.
I paper-pieced the socks and coloured in the little hearts with a marker. While I had patterned papers that might have been a little more in keeping with the occasion, I figured I was pushing my luck far enough with said hearts and a quasi-mushy sentiment. :D
For this card, I followed the sketch for The Crooked Stamper's very first sketch challenge! (Hi, Leslie!) I'm also joining the "Love" word week challenge at Just Us Girls.
