It's that time of year for plenty of smooching and ooglies... Valentines day! This round at Little Miss Muffet Stamps the challenge is to create a Valentine or Love inspired project. (Or if you use a LMM stamp then you can submit anything you'd like!) I chose to make a tag this time around with of the the newer releases from last week... meet Hooch!

If you remember (or go visit the store to see Hooch) you'll notice that his bow used to be turquoise! The challenge at Make it Colourful is to color reds using other colors and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see what that would look like with a turquoise base. So I colored over the bow using R05, R22, R46 and R14 and this is what I came up with... it's more of a dark burgundy but a good experiment.

One of my favorite color combinations is pink and chocolate browns so I love this time of year. ;D The tag was simple and quick to put together and I added a touch of green to help contrast all that pink. Several of the elements are actually from my older stash so it felt good to use up some of those older supplies. He he he. Hope you've enjoyed this and make sure you head on over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenge blog to see all the other great projects from the DT!
