Vase of hearts

Hi everyone, a card today for Stamp Something where the challenge this week is 'no stamping allowed'! I've used one of my digital images which will be available soon as a download and coloured with markers which hopefully counts as no stamping as no stamps were hurt in the making of this card! The image is matted on red card over a layer of gorgeous Doodlebug 'Love Potion' flocked paper which is perfect for the image. There's also a layer of pink glitter card and a layer of red over the white card blank. The image panel and heart paper are mounted on dimension tape and I added a red ribbon and gem to finish. TFL.

Materials:
Image: Sketching Stamper digi-stamp 'vase of hearts'
Colouring: Promarkers in red, ruby, apple, ice grey 2, ice grey 4, blender pen
Paper: Doodlebug 'Love Potion' flocked paper, Canson red card, white card, pink glitter card
Embellishment: wide red ribbon, red gem, 2mm dimension tape

Back soon,
Chris

Hiya Chris
I was hoping I could do your stamp justice - it really matters to me what you think - I wanted to focus totally on the stamp because it is so beautiful....
