Wow! I am blushing. Thank you all so much for your comments on my last card. As I was reading through them I was starting to think that I might need to start asking for kick backs! HA Ha!
Tonight I thought I would have a play with one of my new fun characters ‘Aim em up Cupid‘. I think he looks sooo cheeky, and a little bit naughty. Just like I imagine cupid being portrayed in cartoons as a child.
Again, I focused mainly on the colouring and featured Cupid on a CAS card. I find these so much easier for me… but I keep wondering if I need to add something. For example, I wondered if I should have added some pearls to the corners?
It’s hard to portray in a photo but the ribbon is raised on mounting foam and ‘curls’ around the card rather than being flat. Looks really nice.
I used last years Valentines Paper by My Mind’s Eye – Love Me Do and simply layered and matted with white card stock.
Help finish my whacky sentiment…
I wanted to come up with something a little whacky for the sentiment… “What lengths must one go to… to find True Love?” I just need to think up the rest for the inside. haha. Something along the lines “Calling Cupid?” If you have an idea please add it to the comments. 🙂
