A Toad or Prince Charming?

02/09/2018 Update: Favorite of the Week at Splitcoast Stampers.

This cute digital Valentine image, "Queen of Hearts" from the Eleanor and Pickles Collection by Lacy Sunshine, was selected for the February Brown Sugar Monthly Challenge #255 . I downloaded and colored it with Copic alcohol markers and then reduced it with my printer. I found it simpler to color using a larger image.

The image was die cut, the sentiment stamped and the panels were adhered to the card base. The pearls were added. The inside of the card was lined with white cardstock and decorated with a few small stamped hearts.

Brown Sugar Challenge #255 starts on February 2, 2018 and runs for one month. We would love for you to join us with your stylish cards and paper crafting - you could win a prize!
