Love is...

Hi everyone! The Inkettes are off this week for the Christmas holiday but we were asked if we wanted to do a couple extra projects with some of the Inky Impressions December releases. Of course, I said yes... just look at this adorable Cupid's Arrow image used for my first 2014 valentine! I used some fun new 6x6 papers. You can't see it very well in the photo, but the red background paper is dry embossed with hearts. I used clear Inky Dinky Drops alternating with tiny white flat-back pearls around the perimeter of the circle die cut, along with an Inky Bali heart charm.

Cupid's wings got some embossing tinsel to give them some shimmer. And I finally got to play with my new bow maker and created a double-loop bow for this valentine. Not too shabby for my first attempt! ;)

Here's a peek at the inside. I just love this sentiment! It's actually a new new January release that no one has seen yet!
