Love is in the air...

Yeah! Friday again! It's been a very long week for me for some reason, so I'm glad it's finally friday.

This weeks challenge theme was Valentines. With that in mind I decided to color up a chi chi image called Eloise and her Heart Basket.

I stamped Eloise on to bella's bestest paper with black memento and colored her with my Caran d'ache pencils and blended with gamsol (OMS).  After cutting her out I left the die in place and sponged some versamagic wheat ink around the edge then went over it with some pixie pink.  I based my coloring from the colors in this piece of paper from K & Company- Wild Raspberry collection - yes this is the same paper collection I used on yesterdays card.  It was still sitting here on my desk so leafed through and found this piece.
I added a piece of may's art lace ribbon across the middle. Isn't this pretty lace- almost didn't want to cut into it, but I did!
Finished up with some glitter on Eloise's dress.

Next weeks challenge is a circle card. If you would like to play along with us babes, email your creation to by thursday night to be included in a draw for some bella bucks.

Have a great weekend all!

CUTE! Eloise looks pretty in pink! I don't know if I would be able to use that incredible piece of lace!Lol! I can be a bit of a hoarder when it comes to pretty embellies. Beautifully coloured as always Pauline! Have a great weekend.

Well the creative juices had us flowing on the same wave length again but I love the soft pinks you used. It gives it a very elegant feel especially with that swatch of lace. Ummm - lovely!
