Can you imagine anything better on a Valentine's Day card than two stick figures? Well I can't! ;D I've fallen hard for this Stampotique stamp, I think it's so cute and funny, it really became one of my favourites. To accompany the stick figures on this card there are the Tim Holtz birds, the Friends Definition by Hero Arts on the background, a rhinestone and some washi tape and some papers by BasicGrey and Echo Park. I coloured the dots on the dotty Echo Park paper with a Copic marker, that way the dots match the stick figures' heads better :D Oh and I paper pieced the heads of the stick figures and coloured their bodies with some Wink of Stella pens by Kuretake.
If, by any chance, you're wondering why my Valentine's Day card is not a lovey-dovey card dribbling with hearts, here's your answer: in Finland Valentine's day focuses more on friends and friendship and not really on love and lovers. So this is a card for a friend and as much as I love my friends, Valentine's Day in Finland calls for different kinds of cards than Valentine's Day in some other parts of the world ;)
Osallistun tällä seuraavaan haasteeseen / I'd like to submit this to the following challenge:
* Kuretake Challenge #1: Valentines! (Hope this qualifies... ;) )
Tässä vielä lähikuvaa noista tikku-ukoista, näkyy kimalle hieman paremmin / Here's a close-up of the stick figures, it shows the Wink of Stella sparkle a bit better:
