Happy Valentines Day....

How about some "Scary Love" Valentines? I was asked by a young lady from Youtube to stamp out some out some of the images I purchased from Stampotique. I am a big fan of their stamps and have promoted them to many of my friends and the Art Group I was part of. I had sent a few to another Youtube-r named Lollyrot who this young lady follows.
When she found out that I had done this for Lolly, she asked if I could do this for her. My initial reaction was, lets say not enthusiastic. I did not want to start making this a habit, but she was very young (14 or 15) and well she could not afford to purchase them.
So while I had them out I decided to play myself. I decided to also send this young lady some chipboard hearts and stars to play with. As I was cutting them out I thought wouldn't it be fun to make some "Creepy Love" Valentines.....
I colored the images with my Prismacolor pencils, and added glossy accents to their eyes. I used some holographic glitter here and there to add a little sparkle to them, as well as Stickle buttons!
I stamped a Tim Holtz Valentine Ticket, scanned it and shrunk it, and coated it with glossy accents to make the "Love" token in the right hand corner. I used Utee and glittered two small punched hearts....
The hearts were sprayed with Russet Red and Jolly Roger Red sprays from Lindy's Stamp gang, then edged with black ink.
I stamped the heart with the "heads" background stamp from Stampotique, embossed them and put a sash of glittery ribbon across it. The rosettes were made with red crepe paper, tipped with black ink and black Stickles. Happy Valentines day!!! If you like these images be sure to visit Stampotique, the artists are Daniel Torrente and Jill Penney!! Tell them I sent you.
