Good morning!!! It's linky party time at Peachy Keen Stamps! They are easing back into the challenge routine by starting off with the opportunity for you to link up whatever you have recently been working on with your Peachy stamps! Today I am sharing some inspiration from the new Peachy Kit of the Month for January! LOVE it! Here is what I made:
(And I just have to point out the wonderful watermark that my sweet husband made for me! I'm so excited!) Anyway, I stamped the sweet little cherub from the kit on some light gray paper from Crate Paper's "Random" 6x6 paper pad. Used some Copics to color in just the eyes, lips, cheeks, and halo, and a white gel pen to color the wings. Then topped the halo and wings with Glossy Accents. The oval and background was cut on my Cricut using Elegant Edges,
The sentiment is also from this kit, and the frame shape on that was cut from Theresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge. I also colored the heart with Copics, and covered it with Glossy Accents. The trim behind it is from the October Afternoon trim pack with the Holiday Style Collection.
The edges of everything were distressed with my Tim Holtz distress tool, and inked heavily with Time Holtz distress ink. I found the cute little heart-shaped doily at Michaels the other day and just HAD to get a pack of those! I splashed a little October Afternoon Sprinklers on the doily, and on the sentiment frame to make it look a little more vintage.
The framed image, and sentiment frame, are both pop-dotted from the card for some dimension. You can see it a little better here:
And there you go! My little vintage cherub Valentine card!!! I LOVE how it came out!!!
