MarkerPop: Raining Roses


Hello to all my friends in cyberland!   
It is Wednesday already.   I start my week of work today but pant to commute to Sacramento aftre work each day for the rest of the week.   I have some friends that will be there for a meeing and it will be a great time to catch up!   Nothing is better than spending time with our friends and family.   

 I am eccited to share a  card I created with the adorable clear stamp from Wild Rose  Studio called Raining Roses.
I just love the way the little guy looks at his love!  Now that is LOVE!
I created a  5.5 in x 4.25 in. card for this image but it would work well for a scrapbook page
or a 3-D project.
When I had my Copic Inking Class in Anaheim we  colored on fabric.
This image would lend itself to a little fabric gift bag!  I must try that!

I used the hearts punched from the Nestabilities die for embellishment.
Memento London Fog was sponged on the corners of my fabulous Whimsy Romance Design Paper. 

Tip for the Day: Texture  can be added to your image to create interest and hold the viewer's eye.   The sky is the limit on applying texture.  You can texturize fur, grass, clothing, bricks, or wood.  The list goes on and on!   Colorless blender from your marker or applied to fabric with texture will work really well. You can get some great designs!  Denim or lace are a couple examples.    I am a little addicted to it  and always alter my images a little to add  texture.     Give it a try.

I am linking this card with the following challenges:
