A Valentine Hug

Day 9 of the Daily Marker challenge, and today I have this year's card for Greg.  This is such a fab image for a Valentine ... I love that real happy hug, though I'm thinking if that's me I need to lose a pound or two ;)

Image used from Eat Cake Graphics:
1016-J Main Squeeze

I've coloured it with watercolour pencils and then popped up on dimensionals.  I had a little scrap of matching DP left so I paper pieced her dress.  Clear gloss added to his glasses and their shoes.  Simon Says Stamp heart border die and sentiment die.  A wee tip I learned from Debby4000 ... use funky foam to make your die cut sentiment pop more!

This card is also posted over at A Sprinkling of Samples and Techniques blog, where you'll find lots more loveliness from Eat Cake Graphics

I've just realised I've used loads of the 'rule of 3' on this card ... 3 touches of green, die and image both sit on the 1/3 lines, and I've 3 places I've used my clear gems. Oh and the image/hearts/sentiment sit in a visual triangle too!  Must have subconsciously absorbed all those tutorials ;)
