Valentine - Inspiration Monday at La-La Land Crafts

Happy Monday!  It's a mixed bag for me today, happy because it's my birthday, but sad because I have to work on it...but then again happy because I'm finishing work a tiny bit early and going for a late afternoon tea at Brown's with my friend Emily.

Anyway....birthday shenanigans aside, it's Monday and that means that Team Monday at the La-La Land Inspiration Blog have a new theme. This week it's Valentine, very topical with it being on Saturday.

Now I could have used one of the many love/valentine themed images, but I decided to make my card with singing Marci, because one of the sentiments that comes with the stamp says 'You make my heart sing' and I thought that was a lovely valentine sentiment.

I've used the following La-La Land products on my card and if you're in the UK or Europe, all of these can be ordered from Dies to Die for.

I coloured Marci with Distress Ink markers and a couple of my new Spectrum Aquatint markers, these are amazing, still geting used to the depth of colour, they are very vibrant, which is lovely for contrast and less vintage looking cards.

Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Fired Brick, Rose Pink (SAQT)
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Outfit and Microphone: Spun Sugar, Begonia (SAQT), Pumice Stone

The beautiful papers are 'Romance' 6 x 6 collection from Whimsy. I've edged them with Pumice stone DI, but didn't get a chance to stitch them today as I was running short on time (a common theme this week).

I cut out the sentiment and popped it on a Spellbinders heart and embellished the card with some goodies from The Ribbon Girl

We'd love to see you join in the fun in our Facebook group and we also have a Pinterest page so you can catch up with all the inspiration.

Well that's all from me, but I'll be back again tomorrow with something new. Enjoy your day! :) xx
