Heart Balloon

This little cutie was sent to me as part of a prize ages ago...I think it's a Lili of the Valley image, but must be an old one as I can't find it on their site. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I embossed some bright pink card using my 'Candy Hearts' embossing folder (by Sizzix), and added it to my card blank to create a border along the top and bottom of the image.

Super card. I love the beautifully coloured image and the lovely embossed background. I haven't heard of a CutterBee Bug before - looks a really useful tool to have for faux stitching.

I love the embossed background, which sets off the sweet image to perfection! Amazing faux stitching - really convincing. I had to go back and check again that you'd drawn the lines as it looks so real! Thanks so much for playing with us at Less is More :)
