Hugs & Kisses

I just love this new Hugs & Kisses digital image by Michelle Perkett Studio!  I think it's going to be perfect for cards for Operation Write Home, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want to receive hugs and kisses from their deployed loved ones.

I colored the three kisses with Copic markers E59, E57 & E55 and was quite happy with the way they came out.  I'm not used to using the darker colors and of course I used BG10 & BG0000 so I'd have mint chocolate hugs and kisses!

For such a cute image I kept my card clean and simple adding a little embossing and faux stitching and a couple of Dew Drops.  The faux stitching was easier than I thought around the Spellbinders Oval after I'd embossed it.  I need to remember that for future reference! 

I have to mention the challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio that starts today too!  The challenge is to make a card using a Michelle Perkett Studio image and use faux stitching!
