A Valentine's Quickie!

Hi Everyone!

Here's another really quick card to make - just in case you have been way laid and not realised Valentine's Day is just a week away!

I've used the stamp set Love Defined from the Summer Mini Catalogue. This set has 8 images in it and I love this tree from the set. You could do so many things with it. For this image I have used a Cherry Cobbler marker pen and coloured the image direct to rubber, then I have gone over the trunk and three of the hearts with a Basic Black marker, done a "huff" on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamped up the image onto Whisper white card. This was mounted onto Basic Black card and then mounted on Cherry Cobbler card  on which I had stamped the heart strings and sentiment from Love Defined.

Like I said very quick and easy. You could jazz it some more with ribbon or a spritz of Shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol, some sponging around the edges or some cosmo glitter on the hearts. Lots of ways to take it up a notch!  But sometimes it is nice to just have a card that is "clean & simple".

See you soon!
