Hubby's valentine

Now the day has arrived I can get this posted, my hubby sometimes sneaks onto my blog to have a look at what I'm doing - so I have to be careful what I post when :)

So an unusual and dark valentines?  Yes in both your assumptions.  He likes skulls and collects skull t-shirts (I've lost count of how many he has), he has pictures of the grim reaper as his background on various different gadgets!  So I know he's going to absolutely love this. 

The image is an Aurora wings one Momento Mori and I've used ProMarkers to colour it.  Originally I was going to leave it on the white background I'd coloured it on but then changed my mind and fussy cut it.  Here's a close up.

I've mounted the image onto plain black cardstock, then onto red card stock and left a white border.  My hubby doesn't like my overly fussy cards so I kept this simple for him.  I did a homemade sentiment and cut it out with a Spellbinders die.  The only other things I added were some black and red self adhesive gems and a couple of  enamelled hearts.

Happy valentines

What a totally brilliant dark Valentines make. The corner image is great as is you colouring..... The simple dark backing allows the image to totally pop off the page.
