House of Gilli blog
1st Gilli blog Challenge – Hosted by Suzanne J. Dean
Call me old fashion but I think is adorable to celebrate Valentine’s day! I do believe we should bring love to our everyday lives. But it is kind of sweet to have a day solemnly dedicated for that special one : )..Yeah it is time to celebrate the one that drives you mad, but also makes you smile! Oh love..lol. One cannot live without it.
My special valentine card was created using Gilli Senorita! As you will noticed a little trim gave a whole new look to this romantic girl. During this whole project I could hear gorgeous guitars solos and castanets playing along with each drop of glue : ). Nothing more passionate then a Spanish dancer swirling around her chosen one…the melodies, the strength, the fatal eye look! Pure passion.
I colored my Gilli Senorita with copic markers. I love the possibilities of decorating her mantilla…so I used pearl pen and stickles…the tips are super thin so it was a breeze to make the tiny accents. You just need to follow the stamp design. The added touch gives such a delicate feel to the image. To create the romantic background I used Anglaise Die cut (StampingScrapping & anaRydesigns die cuts) in conjunction with the matching Anglaise Stamp set from Stamping Scrapping Stamp Designs. I added a little handwritten touch to the cardstock background using white pen. It is kind of cool how the white pen worked over the metallic cardstock…so much fun. Now I have to say that no Spanish inspired card can go without a nice fan…so I added a little handmade fan with bows for an extra flair : ).
I hope you enjoyed my little passionate project…now it is time to hop around and feel the love of my lovely designer friends!!! HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
