You're Sweet.

Hi There!

It's Jessica today, popping in to share two cards with you that I made with a couple of stamps  Valentine Wishes and a swirl from the Circle It stamp set.  

For my first card, I wanted to have lots of color on the sweet little girl image, so I used a variety of Copic markers and then as luck would have it, found this patterned paper from one of My Mind's Eye paper packs... whew!  I usually pick out the papers first before coloring, but this time I colored the image first.

I used some more papers from My Mind's Eye for my second card - adding a variety of textures with the die cut, ribbon, sewing, embossing, etc.  The doily matches the little girl's dress - it shows up more purple than it is in the photos.  After I embossed the card front, I rubbed some white craft ink over it to soften and highlight it a bit.  The sentiment die cut is cut from one of the papers included in the My Mind's Eye paper pack.

Here's the two stamp sets I used on my cards today:

Have a great day!

I like the small prints to the papers you used. So you pick papers first...good tip. The texture is great on your cards.
