Cupid's Sting :: Amy Crockett

Hello Peachy friends!!  This is Amy with a fun project using the new Cupid's Sting stamp set.  I just love Valentine's Day and this adorable image is so fun color with my Copic markers.  Isn't his expression fabulous?!?  I added some white gel pen accents to the colored image and a gold colored paint pen to color in the halo as well as some glossy accents to the heart on the arrow.  I then cut it out with my Large Circle Nestabilities set. 

I also embossed the edges with my Nestabilites in my Cuttlebug and then added some blue ink with my ink blending tool and two shades of blue.  I used the lighter one first and moved in closer to the image and then with the darker color, I just stayed closer to the outside making sure to blend it all together again with the lighter color.
I finished it all up with some ribbon, bakers twine, a button, glitter, a doily, and some pen stitching.  I hope that this has inspired you to get some stamping done for cards to send to loved ones this Valentine's Day!!

Hugs,
Amy
