Well, January is almost over, but it is not too late to purchase the Project Of The Month stamps on sale right now at High Hopes Stamps! You still have until Saturday the 31st to save 25% off the regular price!
Now this month they are featuring the tooth fairy set, with lots of toothy-type accessory stamps, but I chose to make a valentine with the main image only to show you that she can be a versatile little angel fur shur! ;-) Be sure to check out other great sample cards and special projects made by some of the other Divas over at the HH blog. Some of the gals made uber cute boxes for little girls to use to hold their lost tooth in, with satchels for the money to go into! So cool!
On Monday Splitcoast's Technique Lover's Challenge had us using paper pleats on our cards. I used them in two places; inside her purse and below the main image panel. I used an exacto knife to cut the top edge of her purse so I could fit things inside it. (If you are using her as a tooth fairy, it can help you make a money card, cuz you can cut the top of the purse and slip in some dollar bills or coins if you're on a budget =D ) I didn't like how it ended up looking (too plain) so I added some narrow pink ribbons as well, which kind of hides the pleats! The pleats along the bottom of the main image were supposed to curve in both corners, but alas I didn't get them to curve upwards enough on the left side so they kinda look lopsided, unfortunately. Ah well, the lady who receives this isn't going to care, she will be just happy to feel all my Valentine LOVE!!! heh-heh!
I watercolored the angel using Tombow pens and water. The panel she is on as well as the largest panel were done using Embossing Resist.
I doodled around the edges and added lots of glitter glue to her wings and wand, and Spica glitter to her slippers and bow.
Thanks so much for looking today, and BE BLESSED in HIS (DADDY GOD'S) LOVE TODAY!
