Cupid Bear

     Another challenge starts today at QKR Stampede and we want to see you do something that relates to "Cupid," that mythical guy with the bow and arrows who makes people fall in love.  :-D  I used a fun image called "Cupid Bear" - Digi 10602 and a sentiment called "Hooked on Love" - Digi 14612.

     With the New Year behind us, it's time to think about "New Love" but I'm not sure that means shooting yourself in the foot.  lol

     The image is colored with ProMarkers and I added metallic paint to the wings and stars which really shines.  The inlaid decorative corners are die cut using one of my new die sets from Scrappy Land.  I fussy cut the sentiment into a vague heart shape and tied the bow with some pink ribbon.  For bling, I added the sequin to the bow and some gold sparkle ink to the bow and the arrows, plus a tiny bit of glitter to the star on the sentiment.

     This card is an interesting combination of new (the image, the dies, and the sequins) and old or hoarded items (markers, CS, ribbon, & paint.)  New Year's mean it's time to get rid of stashed and hoarded items by using them up.  :-D

     The week is over, I'm finally back online with a new U-Verse Internet connector and I'm going to get caught up on everything I missed, including visiting favorite blogs and getting a post done which should have gone live last Tuesday.  Look for it later today.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
