CR84FN Color Challenge 37 Week of August 27, 2011 Light Blue, Turquoise, Neutral Love - Luckenbooth / Claddagh


Blue and Turquoise must be my colors for this week.  This is my third post in a row with lots of blue!    But that is OK - Blue is my favorite color!

For the CR84FN challenge I made this romantic heart card - I admit I was reading romance on my Kindle while resting from my dental surgery.  It was a gothic vampire novel with a princess of course.  I've got you thinking Edward and Bella right?  Suddenly it's all becoming so clear..... 
I used this Claddagh/Luckenbooth stamp from Highlander Celtic Stamps that I embossed in gold and then colored with Copic markers.   I just started my Copic collection and I'm learning on my own until there is a class in my area.  UTube has been very helpful with this.  Did you notice how I alternated the colors on the left side of the intertwined hearts?  These markers really do blend beautifully - and the color still came through nicely on this ivory colored paper.


The heart locket is a button that I snipped the back off.  I think it looks great with the key.  For the frilly ribbon that accents the heart I simply took about 8 inches of wired organza ribbon and pinch gathered it on one side.  The wire really helps it stay in place and makes it easy to tape down.  Thanks for checking out my blog and for your kind words of encouragement!
