Violet With Key


Hi everyone! I just love this valentine's patterned paper collection by Bo-Bunny Press and don't know what I'm going to do when I run out (sigh)! The cute little girl in the image is the Swiss Pixie Violet With Key rubber stamp by C.C. Designs.
 

My card base is True Black layered with White Cardstock then Heart Attack patterned paper stitched around the edges. The show layer is True Black layered with Sweet Nothings patterned paper stitched around the edges. As I was assembling the card I realized Violet was sitting and adding a strip of Tickled Pink patterned paper layered on True Black to make it look as though she is actually sitting on somthing.

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edges and layered it on True Black. The wings were highlighted using Diamond Stickles. To embellish the card I wrapped Black Grosgrain Ribbon around the Tickled Pink strip and paired it with a matching bow in front. I also added some clear dew drops in each corner of the shadow strip.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
