A very belated Valentine

Obviously I made this card a while ago but only got around taking a photo today. Shockingly it was a sunny day so actually managed to snap it in natural light!

It's a very simple underembellished card as I wanted to concentrate mainly on sentiment and that gorgeous little girl from Jellypark. I found that little Etsy shop very recently, love Claire's quirky style!

I used Basic Grey Origins papers and stickers, got them in the monthly scrapbook kit and wasn't instantly taken by them but I think thy might grow on me now.

Ribbon is from Poppycrafts, sentiment computer-generated.

Colouring is done with Copics, I tried to achieve a bit "watercoloury" look by using the tip to tip technique. Not sure how well that worked out! :D

Lately I have discovered the easel cards, they are sooo easy to make and look really effective!

Thanks for looking!
