AWARD OF EXCELLENCE !

 


I immediately fell in love with this card the moment I saw it; the warm, vibrant colours attracted my eye. Upon closer inspection I could see the colouring was superb. Lisa Cook made this Valentine for husband and this is what she said.......

"I don't usually make cards for my hubby since I can't ever figure out the neat sayings for inside. I thought this one was just so cute I could live without all the sweetness in the saying. I'll figure out something good to write hehe. I used the kissing Tilda and Edwin. They are perched on the stone wall, but I extended it a little bit. They would fit on the one as stamped, but I wanted it to be a little longer with my background. I just put the seam under Tilda and you can't even tell :) I colored all of this with Copics. For the background piece I used a paint brush, re inkers (B21, YG93, and colorless blender) to paint it. The white highlights are from Copic Opaque White paint. Their little Valentines are brads. Their hands are cut out and raised with dimensional. I also raised up the entire stone wall with dimensionals. I had a blast creating this! I hope he likes it".

Lisa I am sure he absolutely loved it.
