Just knowing when to stop.....

.... can be half the battle!  Have you seen this incredible beauty from All Dressed Up.  Perfect for Valentines!  You can find Cupid here.  

I've coloured the image with Copics adding a gentle green glow around the image.  I was going to do something a little fancy with her but after trying to get all the red ink off my fingers I discovered I'd splashed a bit extra around the image.  So I dotted a little more red on and then scattered some white embossing enamel as well.

Here's where I thought stop!  I cut the image short of the card then distressed it with a Tonic Solutions tool.  The sentiment is made up from Tim Holtz stickers.

A CAS valentines card was the result which my hubby loves, may have to put this away for him ;)

Gorgeous card Andrea! Isn't it great when you are able to create something beautiful out of what you first consider to be spoilt by splashing ink on your project or other such accidents!
