Love Ewe !!!

This cute image "Love Ewe" is the latest from Faith @ Designed 2 Delight. This is the first challenge of the month, so you can grab it for free, post by the deadline and receive the next one for FREE!!! It's so much fun : )

This past Saturday, my girlfriends and I spent the afternoon & evening "scrappin" away @ Archivers. We just LOVE that store!!! And, it's so fun because if you run out of something or need inspiration, you can just wander around the store and get ideas, or buy what you need. Although....that can get you in 'trouble' too....LOL!

Back to the image! I decided I would finish up my card early this week and post it as soon as I could. No last minute post....YAY ME!! One of my girlfriends had purchased some ProMarkers awhile back and I really wanted to play with them. She had a HUGE array to choose from and I had a great time with them. I used them to color in my image. I REALLY like these markers. Don't get me wrong, COPIC's are great too, I started out on them - but the ProMarkers are awesome.

I then used my CI Paints (Creative Inspirations) Pink Highlights to add shimmer to the flowers. You really should check out CI's blog for some wonderful ideas ~

I then embossed my gray background and added some bling. I also added a new glitter marker from the COPIC line. They are called atyou Spica glitter pens. These pens comes in 13 transparent colors and contains pigment based, non-toxic, acid-free ink. It's a little hard to see, but I used it on the edges of the heart to make it shimmer.

WOW...I can't believe I have my post done now. Feels good : ) Hope you like my design and please feel free to leave comments.

Till next time!
