50s Sweetheart - AFA DT Post


Hi everyone! It's Sunday and you know what that means....a new challenge over at Anyone for Anya! This week we have a sketch for you to play with so pop on over and check it out! Even though I am little all Valentine-d out, I thought I would tie my sketch in with the Monday Funday Challenge over at the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog which is Red and Pink. I used the super cute 50s Sweetheart digi from The Greeting Farm for my card.

I used some gorgeous papers from the My Mind's Eye paper pads Blush and Love Me. I coloured some seam binding using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Fired Brick, and tired it in a double bow.
The sentiment is from the Love collection over at Kikki K. 

I coloured the image using copic markers and add some Judikens Diamon Glaze to the big heart. I love how this looks! Nice and shiny and 3d. The heart was paper pieced using some maroon paper from the Basic Grey Kissing Booth collection. I distressed this, and the papers using some Antique Linen Distress Ink.

Here are the copic colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E00, E11, R11 (blush)
Hair: (Anya) E11, E31 (Ian) E31, E35
Dress and Bow: R11, R22, R05 
Jacket: E53, E11
Pants: E47, E71

Other challenges that I am entering with this card:

Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Distress, Your Choice (pearls), Ribbon
 Southern Girls Challenge - So Distressed (distressed the papers, the heart, and the seam binding)
