Be Mine

This very purple card (LOL) is featured on the Paper Salon Blog today. Have I mentioned how TOUGH purple is for me? I know I mentioned it to a couple of people in the past couple of days, so I've been pushing myself to use it! As you can probably tell, I used my Scalloped Hearts Nestabilities on this, and what is a little more difficult to see, my Copic marker (on the chipboard slide and - I love this trick! - on the ribbon). The ribbon is actually off-white grosgrain - I colored it EASILY with my Copic. I used the brush end of my Sketch marker and just went over it once; the alcohol-based nature of these markers mean it covers completely. What else does it mean? That you always have the right color ribbon! ;)

The stamp is from Paper Salon's Love Notes Tailored Tin (an unmounted red rubber tin). I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder. The papers are all from the First Blush collection again.

Thanks for letting me share! If you have a chance, take a look around the Paper Salon blog - there's lots of great ideas there!

Be well! ~ Jenn
