It’sss in hisss kisss

Time to get romantic ‘cos Love is in the Air at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.Please take a look at the challenge blog for details on how to play along and be in the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to check out the wonderful DT work while you’re there.

There is also a special sale going on at the store this month :


Don’t forget the current 99¢ Digi Deal stamps are only available until March 1st and then they will be gone forever!If see something you like grab it while you still have the chance!

On to my card.I’ve used Charming from the Valentines category at Digi Doodle Shop (it’s included in the sale too!) and coloured it with FlexMarkers.Maybe the colour scheme is a little unconventional for a Valentine card but as this is for my DH and I don’t think girly pinky reds smothered in love hearts are really his style it also suits this slithery pair.Plus it also gave me another chance to play with this fabby paper I picked up in a sale!I pricked the papers using the We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Tool with a couple of different heads and added some faux stitching.The charm,which started out as a plain ol’ antique brass one ’til I added some colours with matching FlexMarkers,has been sewn on for real but loosely to still allow some movement.I wasn’t sure about colouring the charm at first but once I’d committed to it I quite liked it 🙂 Have to say I found FlexMarkers lend themselves better to this technique than my ProMarkers.Must be the brush tips that leave a streak free finish.Having decided I wanted to use a heart matting piece I quickly realised I don’t own any heart shaped dies.Not to be thwarted by such a detail I made my own templates with a Flower Soft tub and a pot of my daughter’s Clearasil pads along with a ruler for the straight part.I think they turned out pretty well and actually don’t nest too badly.To cover up any discrepancies that did occur may have occurred in my cutting out I distressed all the edges.I recycled a piece of corrugated card that packaged my beautiful Rennie Mackintosh calendar that my DH bought me as part of my Christmas present.After peeling off the top layer I roughed it up with a sanding block as well as distressing the edges.The sentiment is my own creation and I admit it!

Image : Charming from Digi Doodle Shop
