Be Mine

Today is the second day of my feature spot as a Fab Friend on the MFT blog. It's Valentine's Day, so I thought I'd squeak in with one more heart themed project.

I used everyone's favourite bunny, Valentine Flopsey, and paired him with the Sweet Surprise Gift Box.

Flopsey is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with copics. I attempted to give him a furry look by colouring him with little dots of marker instead of the usual solid colouring technique. I think it does add a little dimension to his look...not sure if it looks like fur or not, but I like the broken-up effect.

I did the 'faux-poxy' technique on the heart, to make it look like a custom epoxy sticker. It's super easy to do, just requires patience for the drying time. First I covered the heart with crystal Stickles...maybe a little too much stickles since the words are difficult to see...sigh. Then once that was dry I coated it with crystal effects for a glossy, dimensional finish.

I cut out the largest of the hearts a plenty die-namics from pink cardstock, ran it through an embossing folder and added it behind Flopsey. The belly band is edged with a red scallop that I cut out using my small scallop border die-namic.

the patterned papers on the Sweet Surprise Gift Box are from Doodlebug's Sweet Love collection. I stitched around each piece before adhering it to the flaps on the box.

Wishing you a wonderful Valentine's Day, wherever you are and whomever you're with!!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentines Day to you too!
