Elzybells Valentine's ATC SWAP

Here is one of the projects I have been working for an ATC SWAP hostessed by Tracy Clemente. As of Friday, they are on their way to California. I can't wait to get these SWAPs back! I am such an addict to these cute little Elzybells images. Slowly but surely, I am getting quite a collection! For the bottom layer, I stamped a piece of Pretty in Pink CS with Real Red ink using CHF wonderful backgrounder- Pretty Patterns. The bg stamps has a lacy, heart-like look to it that I thought was perfect for my theme. The image was colored with Copic Markers then I decided it "had" to have some sparkle. I painted the moon with yellow stickles, went over her shoes with a red Spica glitter pen and added a small rhinestone heart from A Muse to her hair and a larger one from Me & My Big Ideas hanging in place of the star for this image. After coloring, I paper pieced her dress with Bo Bunny PP Valentine's paper. As soon as I saw this A Muse sentiment, I knew it was a MUST have. Both of my DD were read "Guess How Much I Love" from the day I brought them home from the hospital. Little and Big Nut Brown Hare hold a special place in our hearts! Other than that, everything else is pretty straight forward. I am really getting to enjoy making ATCs for these SWAPs! It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
