Our Challenge for you at Elphine House  this week is ‘No Patterned Paper’ We would like you to make your own background with stamps, die cuts, embellishments, whatever you like, just no patterned paper. This was a hard one for me as I love my papers but die cuts are also a favourite so this is what I came up with:

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40 clothes: C5, C3, C1, C00 flowers: BG72, BG11, BG0000

When closed it looks like this:

It’s a little hard to see in the photo but I have actually stamped old fashioned script very faintly inside each of the heart. The gorgeous filigree heart die is from the February release at Marianne Designs and is available here

A closer look at the base:
