Love You Valentine

Hi Blog Friends!

Posting for the 
30 Day Coloring Challenge
Found here: 
I should say, I love to do challenges-- one of the reasons I started my blog,
& Kathy's challenge has been so much fun! 
Thanks Kathy! ;)

I will also be entering this in 
SSS Wednesday Challenge
Anything Goes
Found here: 
(This is entry #4 for this challenge, so I can only enter one more there.... ;) )
So, I was thinking about Studio Katia's stamp- Sweet Heart Candy....
I used to WISH I had a stamp like this & won this set later.
Conversation Hearts are so much fun when you're younger,
 & remembering how you'd get them in your little decorated Valentine's box for school sometimes...
I wanted to try some different ways of using this set.

Another idea would be to create a background with it!
Here's what I did:
I created a background/designer paper using Sudio Katia- Sweet Heart Candy, & a few smaller heart stamps from other sets I have.
I used Oxide Inks in my Misti for good coverage.
I drew on scallops with my Signo White Pen & a few dots with a SU Marker.
Once my background piece was done, I chose to use a stamp from a company I adore for Valentines.....

Red Lead-
Honey Bunny
I've used this image before, but for Valentine's I can never get enough of Red Lead's images! 
I was able to stamp the "you" from Studio Katia's Set- Sweet Heart Candy, with a SU- Acrylic Block.

I colored the sweet image with a mix of Spectrum Noir Markers after I stamped her using
 SSS- Premium Dye Ink, on Strathmore Bristol Board. 

The inside done with another Red Lead Stamp- "Pretty Please Won't You Give Me a Sign."
Lastly, I added the embellishments- Nuvo Crystal Drops & Red Lead Sequines. 
(I found the Nuvo Drops picked up the color from the Oxide Inks, so when they were a bit more dry, I just added a touch more on top of what I already had there & got the true white I was wanting.) 

Pretty please won't you give a sign...
That u will be my Valentine?
