Old Fashion Love

Good Tuesday Morning to You

I cannot believe it is February already because the weather here in Massachusetts has been so mild. Normally winter seems endless but this is one flying by, I absolutely love it!

Hope everyone who saw my post yesterday did the blog hop. It is always so fun to see the great creations all these talented artists come up with. If you have not checked it out you should do so and don't be afraid to leave a comment! We all love to hear what you think of our creations.

Today's card I did just for fun because I am taking a class on line at the Color Me Creative Classroom with Suzanne Dean, which I am learning to color to look like sepia or antique photos. It is really quite fun. I thought this came out rather cute, very different from my usual colorful style.

I used a Magnolia Tilda image, colored with copics. The starfish is a little stamp I had for years from rubber stampede. The flowers and paper are Prima. The Love ticket is from Tim Holtz. The ribbon I had in my stash. I put a little bit of Viva Pearl Pen in transparent on the starfish to make them look wet. I put a little bit of glitter, extra fine in the sand to give it some shimmer.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Magnolia Down Under Challenges Love is in the Air
Sugar Creek Hollow Vacation at the Beach
I Brake for Challenges I Brake for Love

Thanks for stopping by, glad you took a moment out of your day to share it with me!
