I have the honor of having been asked to be a more-or-less permanent Guest Designer at Ike's World. It's almost like returning to a DT where I served for more than a year. I've missed being there.
The February challenge begins today and runs throughout the month. Our theme is "Anything Goes" but we also always have an optional theme which you may use if you wish. This month that option is "Valentine or Love." I chose to use a funny and sweet image from Ike's Art called "Peeping Tom." Obviously, this would appeal to any cat lover but I turned it into a Valentine for a cat lover. :-D
I colored with my ProMarkers, then cut the image with a Spellbinders die. The heart was cut with another Spellbinders die and the corners were rounded with a Fiskars punch. The sentiment frame was a leftover; the open space around the sentiment was cut using a die from Avery Elle. The sentiment itself was hand cut. The sparkly red strip and the plaid dp behind the heart were also leftover scraps. In fact, everything used on this card came from the scrap basket, including the CS on which the image was printed.
