tiddly inks challenge #37

happy valentine's day everyone!! i have been so busy with all of the projects that my 6 year old had to do for school. she had cards to make, a 100th day project to create, & an art competition that she entered. lots to do for a 6 year old. so i had very little time for my own crafting. the time that i usually allot myself to make things for challenges was gone. so i scrambled to finish this challenge & get my own valentine cards done for my family.

this challenge was to create a romantic card.  i actually made 2 cards for this challenge. but here is the one i entered:

i used rapunzel & was inspired by the  movie tangled & the floating lanterns. my daughter & i loved the floating lanterns. it looked so romantic as they were in the boat underneath all those lanterns. but in my card rapunzel is in her window feeling the love the lanterns exude. so i tried to re-create the floating lanterns by using a transparency & stickles. i also was experimenting with flower soft. i colored rapunzel with my copics & i also used the window frame from gothic window. for that i used my distress inks to color it. and finally i used bo bunny valentine paper & some acrylic beads as accents.

when i made this next card, i realized that it wasn't so romantic. but, it's sweet to know that she has bundled up all her love for her sweetie, & that the love has oozed out & up to be shared with everyone.


i used copics, liquid pearls to color annabelle. i paper pieced her wagon with K & Company papers. it is also the paper that i used for the background. & i used stickles & liquid pearls for the hearts. i also used some gel pens for the string on the wagon  & her shoes.

thanks for stopping by & later i will be posting other cards that i made for today. enjoy the day. today is going to be in the 40's!! AAAHHHH it feels like spring. lol.
