Valentine's Day is approaching

I can't believe it is half-way through January already! I am ever so rapidly losing control of my time, and yet I still manage to find time to craft. It's the only thing keeping me sane!!!

Anyway, today I have a couple of valentine's day cards to share - I'm not sure which one (if either) my husband will get.

This first card is made for 2 challenges:
  • Dustin Pike's first ever challenge at his new challenge blog (he even provides a free random stamp to use)
  • Copic Creations challenge #19 to colour fur

I used two Dustin Pike stamps - the bear and the background (from his pirate set). The images are coloured with Copics (of course). I followed Marianne Walker's Tutorial - Coloring Fur for the bear. I need lots more practice but I think the result is still more realistic than I usually achieve.

Digital images - Dustin Pike
Paper - Basic Grey, Lemonade
Ribbon - scrap, unknown
Other - glossy accents, heart brads

This second card uses a digital stamp from a brand-new company called Wink* Wink* Ink. The image is a freebie and it is just soooo cute.
