Bloggers Challenge - Love is in the Air

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  If you're still looking for ideas for your loved ones for Valentine's Day, your in luck!  Today's Bloggers Challenge Theme is Valentine's.

No frilly Valentine's would work for my DH, instead I actually used one of his magazines to create my card.  I used the Zine Piecing Technique from the currrent TJNL, to add color to the tent.  I tell you, you'll never look at magazines the same way once you start using this technique!  The cute images are from StarvingArtistamps DoodleFactory line.  To finish my card, I used the Marker Watercoloring Technique, then added some Marker Washing to fill in the background.  My card also does double duty this week, as it fits the LOVE theme for the Stampotique Designers Challenge this week.

Details:
Stamps - StarvingArtistamps DoodleFactory
Ink - Black Arvhival, Bordering Blue, Creamy Caramel, Markers
Card Stock - Watercolor, Black, Old Olive
Other - Magazine, SAMJ

Be sure to stop by and see what the other challenge players created by clicking on the Bloggers Challenge Logo on my sidebar.

Wishing you a Chocolate, Flower filled Valentine's!
