Falling for you

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.  Do you like sappy sweet cards or snarky?  Or in Oddball terms Creepy or cute?  This card “floats” between the two!

I always start with the skin because if I mess that up I want to be at the beginning, not the end.
I used Derwent skin tones pencils.  Next I colored her dress.  I chose 4 Prismacolor pencils for her dress and kept
layering them until I was happy. (105,208,905,992)
Next, I colored up the hair, again I chose 4 colors (but I don’t always), I just find it makes a smooth
blend to use four colors. (995, 993, 929)
I used the doodle and dots 8.5 paper pack and layered the sentiment over the top of the stars.  I colored
the clouds (1067, 1065, 1061,1059, cold greys), (925, 923, 922 reds).  I made two copies of the sentiment
background  for this card, you’ll see why later.
 I trimmed the background and used distress  oxide inks to color it. When I tweak it the words will stand
out again. (Black onyx, seedless preserves and blue denim).  I also splattered the background with white paint for a starry sky look.

Ok! So I am a little obsessed with slider cards lately!  See why I needed 2 copies?  I wanted the words be readable.
As you can see I also added clouds to the background
This card was made with digital stamp #125 and digital papers doodle and dots 8.5
