Card Cupids Valentine Card

Hello friends! Here is a card I made for Card Cupids. They are asking for Valentine cards. I used PK-M02 mini turtle.

To make the reverse image, I stamped the turtle onto an acrylic block. Some people prefer to stamp onto a piece of acetate, or perhaps you have a reverse image stamp. I like to use the acrylic block because I don't have the steadiest hands, so this method works best for me. Press the paper to the block and carefully lift off.

The image isn't crisp, so you will want to use a fine line black marker to go over it. Since I use copics to color my images, I use a copic multiliner pen to trace over the image. This is a pen made for copic coloring so the image doesn't bleed.
Thanks for stopping by. If you have any questions please leave a comment and I will get back to you. Have a great day and if you would like to make some Valentine's for a great cause, you can read more about it here.
Hugs and smiles, Janice
