Love is in the Air Blog Hop

Today we are having a Love is in the Air blog hop over at Catch the Bug challenge blog.  You should have arrived here from Paul's blog, if not start at the beginning with Jodie's blog.  I have used BugABoo's digi image - One Person to Annoy from the Stella Love collection


I sized and printed the image onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Faces - E000, E00
Gus - B000, G40
Hair - C2
Slippers - W3
Stella - BV00, R85
Hair - W3
Slippers - R81
Glasses - B0000
Heart - R85

I airbrushed BV13 around the image before removing it from the Spellbinders Curved Rectangle die. This image also comes with a hilarious saying so I finished the inside of the card, again using a Curved Rectangle die and airbrushing before removing the saying from the die.

I also airbrushed the flowers to match the paper.  The DP is from Basic Grey's 6x6 Sugar Rush collection.  The border punch is from Martha Stewart.   Finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

Now hop on over to Cheryl's blog and see what she has created for you today.
