You've got Mail

The DT for Impression Obsession has two challenges a month and we create something with the chosen theme and then share it on our blogs. Today's theme is "Valentine's or Love".
You can find links to the Impression Obsession Design Team on my sidebar - check out the creative cards everyone designed -- many of us are showing off NEW images that will be released in January! You can also hop on over to the Impression Obsession Blog and find all the details there!

I am showing off one of the new Valentine's images that will be released in January from Impression Obsession.  This sentiment is not new, but I thought it paired perfectly with the exploding heart envelope! I colored everything with Copics and added some Crystal Lacquer mixed with Ultra Fine Glitter over the small hearts in the image. I have a mixture in a small air tight container and apply it using a toothpick -- perfect to just add a dab to small areas. I used a Micron Pen to make some stitch marks around the panels. And to finish it up I added some ribbon and a little strip of pearls. Final card size is 6 1/2" x6".
