Love

This is a 6"X6" card, the laurel wreath is embossed with a home made embossing folder, for instructions please scroll down to my short tutorial, I used Cricut cartridge "Sweethearts" to create the embossing folder. The photo corners are QK, the hearts are from an Ellison die. "L" is from QK Blossom font and "ove" are from a Spellbinder's font. All coloring was done with Copic Markers and Copic Airbrush system. The "L" was done with Lionet Gold - #Y28, remember that if you are going to use the PearEx with your alcohol inks you must set it with a fixative. To all our friends traveling to CHA today and tomorrow, safe passage and have a wonderful time. Happy Friday, Hugs
