Lovey Dovey

Hello fellow bloggers!

you may have noticed that already the retailers are pushing valentines day, so what better time to start making Valentines cards.  This one was made ready for Sentimental Sundays latest weekly challenge - Lovey dovey, ahhhhh.

Made using a fabulous image from our sponsor this week

a very clean and simple card this week.  the digi image and sentiment were designed on craft artist and printed out.  I then printed the image for a second time.  I've seen these photos with people and umbrellas where the background is black and white, but the image umbrella is coloured, so I took inspiration from this.  I coloured the umbrella with promarkers (poppy, ruby, walnut and cool grey 5), and then shaded the image underneath using pencils, to give a sketched feel. The umbrella was then given some dimension with some pinflair glue gel, and here it is...

I hope you'll stop by at Sentimental Sundays and give us a go, and if you land here - I'd love for you to leave a comment, they make my day every time I get one!

Hope to see you all again soon

  3. Rachel, this is a great card - the sketchy colouring of the image makes the umbrella pop even more!
