Live, Laugh, Love! Inspiration Friday at Loves Rubberstamps!


Happy Friday!

I hope if you were hit with the frigid temps that you have made it through safely!  I don't think I have ever felt a cold like that in my life.  We had temps of -12* with wind chills of -40*.   Well, today this cute little Tiddly Inks image may just warm your heart! Aren't they just the cutest little couple you have ever seen?

I decided to put away my design paper and see what I could do with just solid sheets of card stock.  I wanted to use just two colors of paper, purple and white. I started with a white card stock and folded it into a 5.25 x 5.25 base.  Then cut a purple piece of card stock to 5 inches square.  I ran a white piece of card stock through my Vagabond with a paisley embossing plate for the background and cut it to 4.75 inches square.  I added some sheer ribbon and lace to fancy it up a bit.  I think the Tiddly Inks, Love Fully needs some fancy embellishments!

For the image, I stamped it with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored it with copics. It was a fun image to play with and I think they are just warm and adorable.  After I colored the image, I cut it out with Spellbinders, large ovals, and then cut a frame with the Spellbinders scalloped ovals.  I elevated the image with pop dots.  Finally, I added some flowers and Magnolia dew drops to finish it off.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21
Hair:  E25, E27, E97
Dress:  V91, V93, V95, V99  RV10, RV32, RV34
