Some Odd Girl: Hearts

Hi all,

It's time for another challenge at the Some Odd Girl blog!  Kristy announced the winner of the scallop challenge on the blog yesterday, and today's challenge is to use 3 or more hearts on your creation!  This challenge should be a breeze because Valentine's Day is coming up, and Some Odd Girl has a lot of great images for the occasion!

I wanted to make something cute and flirty...
Here's my card:

The base is actually a piece of SU's retired Bride Specialty DSP - it is pretty thick, and it has some pretty swirls on it!  Next, I put a piece of Rose Red Prints DSP with a Basic Black mat.  On the left, I cut out 3 hearts from Whisper White CS using my SU Heart punch, and sponged them with Ruby Red ink.  On top of the middle heart, I added one of SU's sticky cuts - it's like a sticker, but sticky on both sides!  Once you tear off the top layer, you can smother it with glitter! (In my case, it's Martha Stewart glitter.)

I actually used Love Letter Kaylee from Some Odd Girl, and you can buy her now as a digi in the store. HOWEVER, I used my acrylic stamp version of her, which Kristy will be releasing in the future!  I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar White CS, and coloured her with Copics.  I used some Prismacolor Pencils with OMS for some extra shading as well.  I plopped her onto a black mat, and I'm done!

Don't forget to head on over to the SOG blog and submit your creation with 3 or more hearts!  We would love to see it, and you have a chance to win some awesome digis!
***Starting this month, for our first challenge of every month (because we have 2 challenges per month), you must use an SOG image to be eligible to win.
Soooooooo, for this hearts challenge, you have to use an SOG digi :-)  We wanna see what you can do with Kristy's images!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
