Ribbon Wrapped Valentine

Just in time! I was doodling at my desk the other day (shhh! don't tell my boss that...) and came up with this ribbon-wrapped heart. Well, I DO work in Cardiac Sciences..... ahem.

With Valentine's Day coming up fast, I thought this should be my next digi stamp.

When daughter saw it coloured in, she commented that it almost looked like a tattoo! Yeah, I guess I can see that... my first card is on the "grungy" side.

Then I wondered how some Magnolia stamps would look with it too:

Hey! Not bad!

If you need a heart for YOUR Valentine cards, you can pick up this stamp over at DigiDrawn for only $ 2.50.

Other particulars about my first card can be found at DigiDrawn here.

Details on the second card:

Paper from my stash. I think the red is Basic Grey. The Wild Orchid roses are tinted with Copic Y28 and the Colorless Blender. A Martha Stewart leaf punch was used for the black leaves.

Copic colours used:

Tilda: E0000, E00, Y11, E97, C1, C3, G00, G03

Edwin: E0000, E00, E97, E99, C1, C3, B93, B95, B97

Heart: R20, R22, R27

Ribbon: Y00, Y21, Y28

Happy Heart Day!
