Totally Gorjuss - Lovey Dovey - 223

Love is in the air - and I'm all lovey dovey!!

So with that in mind here's my DT card for this week's challenge over at Totally Gorjuss,.The theme this week is LOVEY DOVEY (obviously).  The is actually my hubbie's Valentine's card - he loved it.

Here's What I Did -
The cream card base is an 8 x 8. The red background card was distressed with scissors and distressing ink, this is not my normal style but I thought I'd give it a go.  I cut a piece of Kraft paper into a large banner and partially rolled the end (this was originally the liner paper rolled inside my Xmas paper - I keep everything lol). I threaded some Bakers Twine down the centre and tied it in a knot with a die cut heart button to secure it.  I tore and distressed the edges and added some distressing inks to age it.  The cute cupid was printed out 4 times, coloured with Copics, cut out and layered up. I die cut the letters and hearts which were attached to the card base along with some Candi.  My cute cupid was such a dream to colour in, but a nightmare to cut out....especially his arms and legs. But it was definitely worth it.

Here's What I Used - 
Digi: Make it Crafty 'Whoopsie Cupid'
Cardstock: Cream CS, Red CS, Paper Pad (Can't remember the name - sorry!), Kraft Paper
Copics: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R30, R20 / Hair/Undies/Quiver - R32, R35, R37, R46, R59 / Bow Shaft - E33, E35, E57 / Wings - BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Dies: XCut Letter Dies 'Centurion', Die-namics Blueprint Dies 3,
Other: Bakers Twine, Glitter Gel Pens, Scissors, Distressing Ink Pads
