Love is in the air

Hello all!
As the 'hearts, flowers, chocolates and Cupid's day' grows nearer, we're getting ready for it with our new challenge over at The Outlawz Alcohol Markers DT this week.   The theme this week is LOVE - you don't have to make it a Valentine's card though, think anniversaries, weddings or just plain ole love for no reason -  the only thing you must do is use your alcohol markers!
       Our sponsor for February is Sami Stamps and she has generously offered a $12 gift certificate as the month's prize.  Please check out her cute digi stamps here.

                      For my card this week, I took inspiration from the Philadelphia Love statue , using my Silhouette Cameo to cut the text in white card first and then offsetting it slightly to cut a larger version in red.  The digi is one of my own, available here and I decided to try out the 'no-lines' technique for the first time, printing it with a very faint outline only.  I think I need a lot more practice but it was fun to give it a go - you don't learn if you don't try something new!



            Entering this into the challenges at 4 Krafty Girlz , Aud Sentiments , Copic Marker Europe , Cute Card Thursday , Lil Red Wagon , Paper Pretties , Simon Says Stamp  and entering for the DT call over at TIME OUT challenges .


Thanks for stopping by and please take some time to check out the fantastic work from my DTeamies - Penny , Linda and Carla.

Fabulous Dawn! Love the cut. I created a replica of that statue as part of my Valentine decor this year. I used chipboard letters and was pretty happy with it. Great job! Hugs!

I forgot about this image! I always loved it and your coloring makes it look so great Dawn. I love to see how you color you own images! I have been thinking of you this weekend - I used your text cloud image on a scrapbook page yesterday. I am going to post it later and will send you the link it I only post it on SCS and not my blog. Love this card! Hugz!

Well, this is a fabulous CAS card! I really love the way you cut out the LOVE! Great job of coloring that cute image with the no-lines technique! (I have yet to try that and with my eyesight, probably won't, lol!) Love this, Dawn! :^)
Hugs, Penny

I hadn't seen this statue before but isn't it fab and your card is a great take. I think you did a great job with the no lines technique. And thanks for joining our DT call and good luck x
