Happy Valentines Day

This one went straight to my DH heart, I hope! Just think Tilda is so cute. He calls them the stamps with no faces! I finally splurged and bought an air brush or gun - I get mixed up what it is really called. I do call it a gun because of the way it is shaped. I tore paper for the sky/ground mask. It was fun! I have mostly ciao pens so it was a bit tricky. The photo really stinks to tell you the truth! I can't seem to get the colors right on the photos. And there is the problem of the red reflecting on the white stickles. The greeting is from an old stamp set by Cindy of Stampingscrapping.com. It has a bunch of specific greetings as well as some of the stamps fit certain spellbinder's dies. I am not sure who made the valentine stamp. I love it and added stickles around it. I did the skin a little differently. I used E000 for my base which is brand new to me. I also wanted Tilda to be more blonde than ash blonde, so I added Y11 to the usual blonde mix that I use. I used mostly R27 and R29 for the reds but in the end added the ciao R that is a deep burgundy. The green is yg63, I think. This is the simplest card I have made in a long time. No embellishments to speak of. Hope you like it. It was not one of my best days - I was a little shakey, but all in all, I think its ok and DH enjoyed it. Hugs to you all, Barb F
