* Vera Lane Studio: Love Is


Welcome to a new week! 

It's my DT day at Vera Lane Studio once again and today I have a Love page to share. Love Is is a 5 digi set which was released in January. It is perfect for any occasion, but with the hugs and kisses sentiment it makes a beautiful Valentine!

I made a 5 x 5 inch page which can be used as a card topper when needed.

The quirky girl comes with a flower, a heart and a sentiment and she also comes holding the flower. 
I coloured my girl and flower with Copic markers and fussy cut them. White Posca pen highlights were added and some glitter applied to her eyelids and hair.
The background was made with Distress Oxides applied with a piece of folded acetate to control the placement of colours. I left some white space. Vintage Photo text is stamped along both side edges along with a stamp that says 'Daydream'. Then in Black Soot I stamped some textured circles from a PaperArtsy stamp set. I splattered diluted black, white and gold paint with a fan brush and finally I blended Vintage Photo ink around the  edges of the card and finished with Black Archival inked edges to add more definition. A strip of gold XOXO washi tape acts as grounding for my girl and flower.
