Cute Valentine Critters!

Hello and Welcome to Day 3 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
 January New Release Blog Hop!  
Today we are featuring the adorable Valentine Critters Set by Diane Zechman. 


You may be wondering where the Valentine card is; this teddy bear image from the Valentine Critters set is doing double duty as a baby card!  I thought that this teddy, with the bow and safety pin was perfect for welcoming a new little one.  The image is colored with Copics, using the pointillism technique on the teddy bear.  The background and small rectangular panel are images from the Leafy Flourish Background and More Set featured on Day 1 on the hop.


The details~

  • Clear stamp set includes 6 images and 10 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 8"
  • Bunny image measures approximately 2.25" x 2.5"
  • Elephant image measures approximately 2.75" x 2.25"
  • Illustrated & designed by Diane Zechman

Check out some of the fabulous samples made by our talented DT in the thumbnails below.

  4. Monet is one of my favorite artists, so your pointillism is much appreciated! It gives the teddy a look of real texture.
