You and Me

Here's a stunning image from Sweet Pea stamp's artist Merdith Dillman. She comes from Plate #98. She's just amazing. I colored her in reds with light tan highlights. I had some beautiful printed paper from American Crafts that went perfect with the coloring. That paper turned this card into a love theme card.I used some sparkly cardstock behind the image, but could have also taken some plain cardstock and used some spritz on it to make the background sparkly. Then I added some beautiful roses and a chipboard heart. I added some transparent decor that say "you & me" and will give this card to my husband for our upcoming anniversary.

Here's a close up of the imageI added a very light hint of blue on the feathers of the wings to give the shading but to still keep the coloring very light and airy. I think this close up also lets you see some of the shimmer on the background paper that is very visible when you see the actual card in person.

I just know he'll love it! Happy Crafting this week everyone!

Cheers, Holley
