Every Monday at StampTV there is a challenge for the week. This week we were challenged to keep it clean and simple. Well, normally, that is not a problem for me but it seems I ended up doing a lot more to my card design than I had planned originally. But even so it does have a lot of open space, so I think it will still qualify.
I used all images from Gina K. Designs as well as pattern paper from Gina K. Designs Smitten paper pack. I also used Spellbinder dies to accentuate the sentiment. Oh, and I had pink rhinestones so to make the corner rhinestone treatment more coordinating with the pattern paper I took the largest rhinestone and colored it with my red Copic marker.
The focal image also was colored with Copic markers. I don't have very many of those but I do the best I can with what I do have. I know.....should purchase some more, but I keep putting it off. They do work great though and with lots of blending I try to get good results with less markers.
Don't you love that little elephant image? You can find him on Rebecca Oehlers It's The Little Things set by Gina K. Designs. And the balloons are on the new duo set True Friends by Gina K. Designs. I found the sentiment from a retired set from Gina's called Heartily Yours Additions designed by Nina Brackett. By putting the various elements all together I think I have a wonderful Valentine design.
