Bellarific Friday: Valentine Martini

Hi all,

Bellarific Friday skipped a week because Emily went to CHA, so we had 2 weeks to prepare the project this time.  This week's challenge over on Bloggabella is to make a Valentine's project!

I chose to ink up the adorable Valentini stamp for the first time! Perfect for the occasion...

My card base is Pink Pirouette CS, followed by a piece of DCWV All Dressed Up DSP, with Basic Black and Whisper White mats.  I added some jumbo white brads to the right side of the panel.  I also added a horizontal strip of Whisper White CS punched with a Martha Stewart edge punch, and I added a black strip and a pink ribbon across. 

I stamped the martini in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bella's Bestest Paper.  I coloured that with Copics, and Prismacolor Pencils.  I punched that layer out with Label 2 Nesties, and added some sponging around that with Bisque Chalk Box ink.  I stuck that to a Basic Black square and added some dots around that with White Gel Pen.  My sentiment is an SU rub-on.

Well, that's it for today.  Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
