Mini Love

Evening everyone, here's my card for Daring Cardmakers with a challenge of 'give it some heart', a valentine theme or a heart somewhere on the card and Papertake Weekly where the challenge is 'shape up' and there must be three shapes on your card. My hearts are the gems bottom right and in the paper and the three shapes are the square of patterned Petticoat heart paper, the strips of red card and again the heart gems. The image is my new 'Mini love' Sketching Stamper digi-stamp which is marker coloured and layered on red bazzil and grey pearlescent paper. The sentiment is Elzybells stamped in red colour box ink. I've used a silver metallic pen for the chrome areas on the mini and for the doodling on the number plate, added the three heart gems and the strips of bazzil card to finish. TFL. Back soon, Chris

Materials:
Image: Sketching Stamper digi-stamp 'Mini love'
Stamp: Elzybells
Paper/Card: Red canson for card blank, Pink Petticoat hearts free download, Red Bazzil, grey pearlescent paper
Colouring: Promarkders in red, ruby, ice grey 2, 3, 4, black, lemon, gold, silver metallic pen
Embellishment: Red heart gems from Sainsburys!!!
