Sassy Cheryl's I Love You This Much


I simply could not resist this cute little guy when I saw him at Sassy Cheryl's!  He's called "I Love You This Much", he's perfect for a kids card for Operation Write Home.  Don't you just love how I can justify my purchase? 

I printed him pretty big and wanted to try out another cloud technique my friend Marilyn introduced our Stamps R Us design team to.  I used Stormy Sky distress ink for the cloudy sky and Copic markers to color him.  Since it's 4th of July weekend I decided on a Red, White & Blue color scheme.  Here are the Copic marker colors I used:  R27, R24, R22, YG67, YG63, YG61, YG11, B95, B93, B91, YR00, YR24, YR21, Y21, E00, E000, W1, C0.

The Love You Lots sentiment is from a Inkadinkado mini set and I colored in the letters a little with Copic markers.  I also added three tiny hearts, I accidentally cut off one that's part of the image on the left side so I put one there and just over the colored heart on the right side and then of course the one on the sentiment.

I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend, thanks for visiting my blog today!
