Heather Valentin’s Petals

Aletha here with a little inspiration piece featuring Heather Valentin’s Petals. Isn’t she a little charmer? A Petals card would be perfect for a little flower girl. I know that she would appreciate the cuteness. Petals can be found as a digital image or as a rubber stamp, whichever you prefer.

I am in love with Heather’s art work. Did you know that the Heather’s images available at Sweet Pea Stamps are designed exclusively for Sweet Peas? I think that is pretty cool!

Petals was first colored with Copics and then trimmed with a die. I then layered her on three layers of purple and light purple cardstock. Before layering I did add some Smooch Illuminate ink to the embossed edges.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, and R20
Hair and Basket: E25, 29, 31, 50
Eyes and Leaves: G40, 43, 46, 29
Pinafore and some flowers: V000, 01, 04, 06, 09
Other flowers: RV34, 52, 69
Dress: V000, RV34, 52, and C0, 2, 4
Dress sleeves: C4, 6, 8
Background: W00, 0, 01, 2, 4, and RV52

Other elements for my Petals project:
  • Cardstock: Pretty Pansy and Pretty Amethyst
  • Designer Paper: Heartfelt Creations
  • Dies: Spellbinder’s Matting Basics A, and
  • Memory Box Fabulous Phlox
  • Paints: Viva Décor 3D Rose Metallic Stamp Paint
  • Inks: Dusty Concord Distress Ink and Smooch

I wanted to remind you all that we have a monthly challenge at One Sweet Challenge. There are fantastic prizes there. Over at our Sweet Pea Stamps Facebook group, we have a bi-weekly art contest. That prize is one digi stamp from the Sweet Pea Stamps store. You must use a Sweet Pea image, the theme is always “Anything Goes,” and you can enter as many times as you want. Each entry MUST be a new project. How easy is that? For all the upcoming events and sales visit our Sweet Pea Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you visit every day for more Sweet Pea inspiration.
