Strong Love

Here is my card for today's sketch challenge on Split Coast. I'm afraid I cut this happy couple in half to accomodate the sketch! That's really using my artistic license isn't it!! "Sorry Officer - I had to do it for the sketch today........ - I have my artistic license right here in the glove box....."I tied the ribbon in the middle to kind of take your mind off the fact that they were cut in half and ALSO shifted to the right!! I colored my image with Koh-I-Noor color pencils and gamsol and added pearls to her little neck (to make up for cutting her in half perhaps!) The image and sentiment panels are up on foam dimensionals. The stamp set is Our Love from H&M Stamps


I just checked Heather's site and it looks like Our Love is no longer listed - so it must be all sold out - if you haven't gone over there already and want to get some great deals on stamps check it out before midnight tonight because that's when her blowout sale is over. She still has a lot of cute sets left so check it out!
