Happy Valentines Day!

Yes, I am quite aware that Valentines Day isn't until the 14th but that is what we are celebrating today at Tiddly Inks. I have used another Pixie and this one is called Dandylion Pixie.

I used some Flower soft on the dandylion to give it that fluffy texture, I just mixed a bunch of colors together, some pinks, yellows and white. Not wild about her hair, I have about 6 or 7 different browns on it but they are just blending into a big blob. Oh well, something to work on.  The doodling around the image is something I copied directly from one of my favorite designers, Jen Shults, and this is the link to the card that inspired the doodling. Doesn't it just amaze you something so simple adds so much? Alright, time to get all lovey-dovey and make up a Valentines card for either your sweetheart or maybe just someone who would enjoy a little love. And remember, you now have TWO weeks to play along so no excuses!

Ooooo, the Flower Soft is so fabulous on this! I really like the way the hair turned out. It looks like natural highlights would in actual hair. Great papers and color palette!

I noticed the doodles right away and had to read your post to find out if it was a separate stamp. And to think you drew that...LOVE it!

I agree, Jen does rock the doodles, you did a great homage to her I love them!

The flower soft is so fabulously fun, I would NEVER have thought of that... too clever. Lovely, lovely!
