Dark Valentine is the name of the image from Delicious Doodles that I have used for this special Valentine card. Coloured in blue and purple pencil and smudged round it using blue pastel.
I'm still having light issues and out of loads of pics these were the best out of the lot.
I have used the sketch over at Anything Goes Challenge Blog. The panel behind the image started off life as black, grey and white to which I distressed with Stormy Sky DI to make blue. The two panels behind that are a "dirty violet" colour. These I embossed and rubbed pewter metallic paste over the raised bits. All panels were matted onto cornflower blue before sticking onto a dark blue with white flecks then amythyst. The horizontal panel is an off cut of the base CS that has navy ribbon added. Navy, powder blue and lilac buttons piled up and sewn on.
The heart is a die cut that has been double heat embossed in pewter to hide the fact it was red.
The little crystal letters (dovecraft) spell "I'm blue without you".
All this onto a lilac card base.
