With a happy heart

I absolutely fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it! I have been checking out the links on Free Digital Stamps whenever I get a chance since digi stamping is so new to me & I am kinda a little obsessed with it (ok a lot obsessed.. I am LOVING it!) and I just KNEW that this one was perfect for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch. She is from My Grafico. I also stepped out of my box a little & tried a new technique for coloring. I used a blender pen & "dipped" it on an ink pad & then colored. Very fun!

Sentiment is from Hero Arts, the hearts are from The {Stamps} of Life. I used Ranger Ind distressing ink in Firebrick & several colors from CTMH to color in the image, DP in My Minds Eye. I chalked the background in greys & blues to make it look like a gloomy rainy day & then added glossy accent to look like rain drops falling & dripping down the umbrella. Finally I added some firey red glitter glue to the heart in her hand

I am also entering on:
Stamp Something where it is "Digi Days"
Totally Stampalicious where the challenge is 3 hearts
The Crafty Ho's Where they have a "love" theme
Sentimental Sundays "Love + a sentiment"
Do You Stack Up where the theme is "Red Hot"
Bee Crafty "Love"
Catch the Bug "Anything goes"
My Grafico "Anything goes"
Crazy 4 Challenges C4C73, "Valentine's Day Card"
Cardmadfairy's Digi Challenge "Romance"
