A Bit of Monster Love!

Hello everyone!

Hope you're all alright?

Quick post today for the latest challenges over at Bugaboo Stamps and Papertake Weekly. As it's Valentine's Day the Bugaboo challenge is 'Love' and Papertake Weekly's is 'With a Heart' where you have to have a heart somewhere on your project.
Now, I don't do Valentine's Day, not because I'm single or think it's a conspiracy between sweet companies to get you to buy chocolate but because I don't think you should show someone how much you love them on the same day of the year that everyone else is doing it. It should be little things you do throughout the rest of the year that show them.

But anywho, enough of my skeptical-ness on to today's card! And here's what I've made:

I used Bugaboo's 'Love Monsters' which is new this week and they are just so adorable! It was a bit interesting colouring them in because I ended up printing the image 5cm wide so it would fit in the aperture and the aperture would fit on the card.

I used Berry Red, Burgundy, Crimson, Hot Pink, Ivory, Lipstick Red, Poppy and Red Promarkers to colour them. They are all different shades of Red but unfortunately it doesn't show up very well.
The aperture was cut with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small.

The little embellishments are from Lili of the Valley's 'Set 22 Love Sentiments' which I stamped in Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Inks and used the third impression to get a slightly faded look to them. The stitched border was stamped in the same way using one of the stamps from Visible Image's 'The Sewing Room' set.

Hope you like it!



P.S. As you can see from the sidebar, I won the August colour challenge over at Bugaboo but I didn't actually realise that until the beginning of this year! I e-mailed and the lovely Tammy said I could still claim the prize which was so lovely! I bought quite a few Chrimble digis but one of the ones I bought, I used on this card here =)
