Happy Monday!! It's the 15th day of Chinese New Year today. Tradition has it that the day is associated with finding a life partner - the single girls will head to the river and throw mandarin oranges into it and the single guys will be collecting these oranges further down the stream. I don't really know if the story is true, but it's a nice one.
I have a cute heart shaped window card (or shadow box card) to share today. I made the card, with measurements from the Layered Heart Die-namics. I used the sweet PI boy from "I Love You This Big" stamp set. The boy was coloured with Copic markers and I paper-pieced his pants with some patterned paper. The Copics markers used are : Skin - E13, E01, E000; Shoes - BG72, BG75, BG78; Sweatshirt - G00, G000, G02; Heart - R32, R35, R37, R39. I added some Sparkly Fluff (Rockstar Red) onto the heart for some sparkle and dimension. The sentiment was stamped on patterned paper and cut out using First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics, and I cut another strip slightly larger for the mat. The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found II, Breeze.
Did you know that MFT has a Guest Designer contest every month? For the month of February, the contest is Stamp Your Heart Out. I thought I'd submit an entry this month just for fun. I reckon my cards are always too simple but it's nice just to try.
Thanks for visiting today.
Have a great week!!
