Season's Greetings Lola

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm excited to say that today starts the second challenge at Simply B Stamp and we have a fun one for you! This time we want you to get out your "Spritz, Masks and Paints" for your project! So go head - you've got our permission to get dirty. ;D You can check out the SBS Blog to see more inspiration, get the details on this challenge and to enter your projects!

For my project I used Season's Greetings Lola from Simply B Stamps and converted the theme into a Valentine project. My kids wear all sorts of hats, so why not a sock hat for non-Christmas days?! My five year old told me it was okay so it must be true! :D After all, what little mouse wouldn't adore getting a slice of cheese for Valentines - better than chocolate, he says. LOL

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up - the set name is "Douce douzaine" and all the sayings are in French. It's a great year-round themed set and this one, of course, is for Valentines.

To fit the challenge theme I used the Copic airbrush and R46 to give it color around the edges and on the kraft cardstock. I even got a little brave and tried to color the tips of her hair pink but didn't get very far before I was scared off. Next time, I'll brush it on like normal, however, it was a good experiment.

Hope you've got some grand plans for Valentines Day - I know I do! :D
