Magic...

Above is my card for this week's challenge at There's Magic in the Air. This is another cute sketch by Nina. When I first saw the sketch, I said to myself, "Self, this is a tough one". I thought about every combination of colors, and no matter what I chose, it still seemed lovey-dovey to me, so pink won!
I printed the FREE digi image off (Nina puts a free image up for the challenge every single Monday) and colored it with my colored pencils and mineral spirits. Then I highlighted the pink areas with Sakura's pink glitter pen. I used a scalloped nestie circle, punched around the image, and sponged with pink chalk ink while it was still in the die. I also drew around the inner edge of each die with the glitter pen before popping the image out!
Hope you like it! Have a great Monday!
