Just sharing a Valentine's Day card. It is AGES since I used the Magic Coloured Pencil/Gamsol Magic technique to colour an image having mainly used Watercolour Pencils in recent times. I felt so rusty as it is a completely different technique to watercolouring and I struggled at first but got there in the end. Glad I started with a simple image such as the one I used on my card!
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock and coloured it with Derwent Coloursoft + Prismacolor pencils, Odorless Mineral Spirits and paper stumps, then lightly chalked around the cat with Kaisercolour blue chalk for the sky and brown + grey chalk for the ground. I added some Kindyglitz Crystalina glitter glue to the hearts and the envelope. The image looks a little washed out in the photo. My camera never likes to photograph anything with pink - it just can't seem to cope with that colour and always washes out my image. Cameras can be so frustrating sometimes!
All the layers on the card are designer papers from my Basic Grey 12" x 12" Kissing Booth collection.
The fancy diecut circle is a Nellie Snellen die - so pretty. The sentiment is from my Wendy Irving Expressions set. I punched a tiny heart from the pink designer paper using my EK Success Arrows border punch (the leftover punchies look like tiny hearts) and glued it next to the sentiment.
The ribbon on the side panel was attached in 2 separate elements and I added Fray Stop to the ribbon ends to stop them from fraying.
Lastly, I added 3 heart gems to the bottom right-hand corner.
