It's Love--Just Inklined Blog Hop!!!

I am so excited to be the hostess this month for the Just Inklined Blog Hop. Since I am the hostess this month the Blog Hop starts here.  I chose the theme Love since February is the month of Valentines.  The artists at Just Inklined came up with some super cute images for this holiday of Love.  I chose My Hero, what do you think?



The image appears to be a little monochromatic but it is soft sky/teal and grey.  The image was colored with copic markers and the outside border was airbrushed while still in the Spellbinder die to keep the white border.  I cut a little bit larger label die cut for the soft sky frame.
The dp was a new pack I got this week at Michael's called chick-a-doo assortment pack, with fun birds, flowers, swirls and I thought perfect for this image and colors. 
The sentiment is a SU sentiment I like, but seldom does it fit a card as perfectly as it does this one. The little castle attached to the sentiment tag is a cricut cartridge called Paper Doll Dress Up and is an accessory of the Princess paper doll.  I cut it twice sized 1/2 inch smaller for the grey so they would layer nicely.  I outlined the shaded areas with a copic marker.  I can't even leave die cuts plain LOL!!!  The heart is a cricut from the Wedding cartridge with a Love heart charm added.

Next on the Hop is the super talented DT member Joyce who will have a wonderful creation to share with you.  If you get lost you can stop back by my blog and find the order here:

Cathy

Everyone should have a knight in shining armour. The blue and grey fits this image perfectly. I personally think diecuts need a little shading for depth and interest. Anyone can cut and paste. It takes an artist to shade correctly! LOL

Sammibug said...
