Valentine Card - Matchmakin' Maynard

OMG...I love this image! ISN'T HE CUTE!?!?!? I saw the stamp and sentiment last year on SCS and just had to have them. I've inked him up a couple of times but I think this is my favorite!

AND IT'S A CAS CARD THAT I LIKE!!!! (big grin)

I stressed over coloring this guy. I even tried to get Heather to color him. In the end I think he turned out great. I combined a couple of challenges on this one. The Copic Creations "feather blending" and the Tuesday Morning Sketch. Feather Blending is one of the first things, Heather tried to teach me in Copic 101. Basically, you take two different colored markers (pink and teal) and get them to blend.

Here's a close-up. I think I did a pretty good job! What do you think? He's got an undertone of pink that comes out in his nose, hands, and along his middle. His underbelly was more pink and less teal. I also used some glitter to give him BLING.

I used the sketch, which is a great CAS sketch because I wanted to highlight Maynard.

Stamps: High Hopes MATCHMAKIN' MAYNARD & sentiment
Paper: Solar White and pink stripe
Ink: Memento
Accessories: Copics, glitter, and pink heart rhinestones
