Old Time Love

Here is my newest card using Tilda with Tag. I just LOVE her, and think she is so versatile. Here I made another Valentine's card, using my Graphic 45 Springtime paper. I LOVE this paper. The muted colors and just gorgeous!!! I distressed all the paper edges with my distress tool, and even ripped some of the edges and stapled them down. I adhered some of the other design paper behind the ripped parts to bring in even more of the pink design.
I chose to stick with the pink and cream color scheme throughout the card. I used my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stain in Wild Honeysuckle Coral for a lot of the coloring of items to match the colors of this card. I LOVE this product!!!! It matches this paper perfect, and adds tons of sparkle to the items. I used it to color the ribbon, which was originally white, and the roses, which were also white. The pictures do not do this card justice, as the colors show a bit more muted in the photos.

I colored this cutie with copics -
Skin - E00, E000, R20
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress and Bow - R0000, R000, R01
Socks and Tag - E40, E41, E42
I added LOTS of little touches to this card as embellishments. The corners were cut on my cricut from the Storybook cartridge. I cut them with kraft cardstock, then covered them with Pink stickles. The heart is a piece of grungeboard that I coated with Antique Linen Crackle paint, then distressed with Walnut Stain distress ink, then topped it off with Glimmer Glam in Tutu Pink for added sparkle. I used a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket for the sentiment, which is popped into a Memo Pin and stick into the floral arrangement. I distressed the ticket with Victorian Velvet and Walnut Stain distress ink. I added Stardust Stickles to pretty much everything in this card, it is super sparkly.
The inside of the card I added some more of the design paper. I used a $1 stamp I got from Michaels, and some more Grungeboard hearts, which I dabbed with my coral Starburst Stain and covered with pink stickles. Then I cut the sentiment area out with my nesties.
