Crafters Companion - Love Is In The Air

Crafters Companion Blog Challenge - Love Is In The Air.

I'd like to enter the following card in this month's CC Blog Challenge - Love Is In The Air.  This is my favourite image from the SWALK range and thought that it is an ideal image to use for the love theme.  In Wales we have the opportunity to celebrate Valentine's Day twice!  As well as the traditional day in February, we have the Welsh Valentine's Day (Dydd Santes Dwynwen) on 25th January. The Patron Saint of Welsh Lovers is Saint Dwynwen.

All of the products I used for this card (except for silver mirror board and embellishments) has been purchased from Crafters Companion.  The SWALK image is the iconic image from SWALK and stamped onto Neenah card.  The image was coloured in with Spectrum Noir pens.  The following pens were used - hair - Natural Oak - 91 (TN8), Mahogany - 96 (TN7), face and skin - Baby Skin Pink - 133 (FS3), Milky White - 132 (FS2), clothes - Pale Baby Blue - 144 (TB2), Pale Blue Light - 185 (TB1), hearts - Rose Pink - 8 (PP5), surround of image - Warm Grey 0.5 ( BG1). The backing paper is from the first SWALK CDROM and printed onto blue paper from the specialised printable paper pack and main card (6"x 6") is made from blue card from specialised pastel card pack. I've also added a blue ribbon and heart diamonte buckle as a finishing touch!!  Hope you like it!

I'm still trying to master colouring with Speccies esp with shading.  So any comments about how I could improve will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

Thanks for stopping by and having a read of my blog.  I will have to start to posting more often but I'm snowed under with cross stitching projects.  I have a baby sampler to finish by early next month.  I will post a photo as soon as it is finished.

Happy crafting everyone.

  1. This is beautiful Sarah. I love that stamp but really like the way you have used shades of blue and kept the layout very straightforward and clean. The silver just finishes if off beautifully.
