Pretty in Pink

I love using a monochromatic color scheme on cards and I thought pink would be perfect for Valentine's Day with this beautiful stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps. I selected a wonderful stamp from ching-chou kiuk called Seeing Through (Plate #42). You can tell from my color scheme how different the image looks than the artist's depiction on the website.I used Spellbinders Nestabilities to cut out some specialty paper to frame the image after coloring it with copic markers. I used a whole pink family R81, R83, R85, R87, and R89 for most of the red/pink highlights on the image.

To complete the Valentine, I added a wonderful verse from the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:4-8; the saying comes from plate #17. The luscious flowers come from Queen and Co. The cardstock I used is from Bazzill and the cute borders are from Doodlebug.

Hope you have fun making Valentines for your loved ones!
