Fun with Coco

And my third AND FOURTH cards for today are...

For this card I used papers from the Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose collection. I coloured Coco with Flowers (from Digi Stamp Boutique) in promarkers; ice grey1, cool grey 3 and cool grey 5, blossom, forest green and pear green.

Job done. Really simple card but I really love it as it could be used for anything. Get well soon, happy birthday, congratulations, maybe even a mother's day card (if I don't get around to making a special one for mum... sorry mum, lots to do etc etc etc, but I will try... I promise!), at a push I could give it to one of the children to give to me since I always have to make MY OWN!!

My fourth card today is also using one of the coco bears from DSB and  for this card I used the following promarkers:

Tan, Sandstone, Blossom, Ruby and Poppy Red, Grass and Pear Green. I added some white spots onto the ribbon with my trusty, (wouldn't-be-without-one) white Jelly Roll pen.

I mounted the image onto black cardstock which I punched the edges of with my heart MS border punch. In case you were wondering, I deliberately mounted the image too far over to the left so that only the top of those hearts were showing as I didn't want it to be TOO symmetrical as the red background paper had a black glitter border that was cut off on one side (as it is scrapbook paper).  I added a black ribbon with red stitching to colour co-ordinate and a sentiment, 'if I give you my heart... can I have yours?' which I made myself on the PC and which I will add to my next post so that you can also use if you wish?

I am entering this card into the Teddy Bear Stampers challenge using a 'love theme' for Valentines. Hope they like it?

Hope you like the cards?

Thanks for stopping by
Hugs, Fae xxx
