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 Gilli_Senorita_Amor_detmakes 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 () 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
