Cupid Love!

                                Happy New Year Whimsy Fans! 

I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year's.  A new year and a new month means a New Release in the Whimsy Digital Shop! What an amazing way to start a New Year!

There are so many cuties to choose from in this release I had a hard time figuring out which one to colour first! Add to that the new sentiments and digital paper! ...... well let's just say it's good I had some time off work to play! 

I chose to use "Cupid" for my card. With Valentine's Day just around the corner this cutie is perfect for you Valentine's Day cards.

I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and then fussy cut it out.  I didn't intend to fussy cut this one but I had one of my red markers explode just above Cupid's head so fussy cutting was a necessity for this one. 
After that catastrophe was taken care of, I pulled out some baby blue ink to create my sky and cut it out with a stitched oval die. 

Then came the really fun part - choosing the digital papers I wanted to use from the new release! I chose them, printed them off and put together my card base. I wanted to keep my papers more on the neutral side so the image popped off the card. It is hard to see but I added some sparkle to the rose and the love word with a sparkle pen.

I added some die cut clouds and filled in his wings with Nuvo Crystal drops. The wood love word and arrow was coloured with a matching alcohol marker. Cotton lace ribbon,a die cut border and some photo corners finish off my card.
