Valentine Kisses

Hello, Hello! 

Anyone else struggling to get back into the swing of things?  Honestly, I just want to hang out at home in my jammies all day;  alas, tomorrow it is back to work.  I guess that means I will have to get dressed! 
I haven't quite gotten back into the swing of blog posts either, but hopefully this week things will improve. Today's card is a Valentine in what I would consider nontraditional colors.  It is also not a Valentine stamp.  I love finding ways to make sets more versatile.  These adorable bears in Sweet n Sassy Stamps' set, Winter Hugs were perfect for a Valentine card even though they are technically a 'winter set'. 

I stamped them nose to nose and then with an old Heidi Swapp stencil I had, traced a heart behind them with a Pigma Micron Pen.  I added shadows to the bears and colored the heart PURPLE (I can't believe I used purple) with Copic Markers.
My sketch is from MFT.  I used a monoprint that I had made last summer with my Gel Plate, acrylic paints and bubble wrap.

 The sentiment is fab; I am loving the fonts.  It is from the new stamp set, Lots of Love
I am also linking up to The Mod Squad Challenge, where the challenge is to make your own patterned paper (my monoprint).
I added a few purple gems and lots of clear Wink of Stella to the heart. 

That's it for me!  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!
