Stamp TV CSS Group February Blog Hop


Hello!
I am thrilled to be joining some girls from the Stamp TV CSS group tonight for blog hop!
If you came from Tera's blog you are right on track! If not, I encourage you to start at the beginning over at Stamp TV because these girls are loaded with talent and are sharing some gorgeous eye candy!

Geri Utterback provided us with a great color challenge this month - Pink, Red and a neutral color of Black, White or Tan.
I used Black with the Pink and Red.
I created a scene for my card using the Wild About You stamp set illustrated by Theresa Momber.
I used a circle to mask the moon before adding the sky and ground  using a brayer pinks and red ink for the sky and ground. I used sticky notes and a sponge to add the hills. The  sponged the hills stamped the tree with black ink. The elephant is colored with copics - W2, W3, W4, W5, & W6.
I used the wild about you sentiment so I could give this card to my husband for Valentine's Day.

Before I send you on your way to Miesje's Blog I want to remind you to leave a comment on each designer's blog as you hop along because we will choose a random comment and that person will win a grab bag of Gina K Design Products!! Look for the announcement of who won on Tuesday, February 12th!

Enjoy the rest of the hop!
