Sparkling Valentine


Finally--I have achieved red hair! YAY! Thanks for all the wonderful help you all have given me, listing tutorials and blogs, and your favorite Copic colors for red hair! We were in Columbus, OH, over the weekend, and I persuaded (translation--begged) hubby to stop at the Dick Blick art supply store there, "just for a few things". Eight markers later . . .

But, I did get the colors that helped me color red hair that I was happy with--YR21 and E97 and E99. Those seemed to be the missing parts of the puzzle for me. I nearly squealed with delight when I got this little gal done last night!




I had originally stamped the hearts on the embossed white cardstock, but it all looked rather bland--so out came the Stickles and I was a happy camper. This is my card for our monthly Card Club, and she'll go in the mail with my card kits to my gals in Georgia. Sure hope they like it! The inside is stamped with a simple heart and "Happy Valentine's Day".
Let me know what you think of her! Thanks for looking!


Supplies: Cardstock--Georgia-Pacific (white), Prism (red); Ribbon--Offray DS Satin; Charm--unknown; Embossing folder--Sizzix; Stickles--Candy Cane; Punch--Martha Stewart; Stamp--Valentine Tilda from Magnolia, and Studio G clear stamps on the inside; Copic markers as shown below:
