Sweetheart Marci

It's almost right smack in the middle of February and I thought I best be showing some Valentine projects! Here's one I've had finished for a while which was originally for a flower power challenge, hence all the flowers. This project uses Sweetheart Marci Digi Scene from La-La Land Crafts which is one of the ones I purchased back in January. Check it out...

I think if I was to do it again, I'd remove all the flowers. Most of my projects are sans-flowers so I guess it's good to create outside of my comfort zone once in a while. :D I also added the white lace and used a Tim Holtz die for the clock face in the background. Here's a closeup of the details of Marci...

I love coloring their faces with the extra details which really brings out a 3D look. On this project I also brought out the white gel pen and added extra details to the hearts. My own daughter is in this phase and lately has been cutting hearts galore every day after school! Scalloped ones, big ones, small ones, hearts within hearts, reds, pinks, purples - you name it... she's been cutting it! I think when Valentines finally hits she'll have enough to give all her classmates two or three each! LOL

A huge thanks to Sandie, I have saved the colors I used on this project to share. (Long story, but she actually helped me save the colors on all my LLL projects!)

Copic Colors: T0, T1, T2, T3, T4, T6, T8, E55, E57, E59, E04, E000, E00, E21, E53, R11, R12, E50, E51, E53, YG61, YG63, YG67, R81, R83, R85, R21, R14, R17, R37, R46, R59, BV11, BV13, BV17
