The LOVE Challenge at Sweet Pea


Happy Monday! There’s a new challenge for you at Sweet Pea’s “One Sweet Challenge.” Our February theme is all about LOVE.


For my project I colored the beautiful image by Helena Reis, “Follow Your Heart.” This beauty is available in digital format or as a rubber stamp, a format for everyone.


My “Follow Your Heart” is in the digital format. I have colored her with Copics and did some accenting with a red Spica pen. I then cut her with Spellbinder’s Labels 28. My layers of cardstock are from Stampin’ Up! in Cherry Cobbler and Perfect Plum. The designer paper is from Trimcraft’s Rose Garden collection.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20
Hair: E42, 43, 44, 47, 49
Dress: R32, 35, 37, 39, 89, and
V000, 09, 12, 15, 17
Heart: R32, 35, 57, 39
Background: W0, 1, 2, 3, V01, 14

As you can see, I used several die cuts for this card. The hearts are die cuts from Spellbinder’s Classic Hearts and Classic ScallopedHearts. After I cut the hearts, I added Stickles and then found some heart brads. I have had these brads for years and have never used them. I just fell in love with brads again. ;o) Most of the background designer paper is covered with a doily that I added some Dusty Concord Distress Ink and then cut into halves.


My little flower spray was created with Spellbinder’s Layered Scalloped Posy. I painted the posies with Carmen Red Viva Décor 3-D Stamp Paint. After that was dry I added some little drops of Orchid LiquidPearls. The vines were created with Spellbinders Die D-Lites Corner Sprigs. I cut the largest die in half and added Gathered Twigs Distress Ink to the embossed areas.


I hope that you will join us over at One Sweet Challenge. You must use a Sweet Pea image for your chance to win. After you have completed your entry, please share your little piece of art with us at SPS’s Facebookgroup.
