February Willow Heart Tree Card

This months theme at the Unique Crafters Challenge Blog is all about lace and fabric. You may create anything you would like, as long as there is some kind of lace or fabric someplace on the card. I used the Willow Heart Tree image from Cedar Chest Designs to create this Valentine's Day card. The dangly little hearts really make me happy. 

After finishing the image I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The candy stripe pattern was from "Lime Twist" Designer Paper Pad by My Minds Eye. The little brad was from Bo Bunny and everything else just came out of my stash. For the challenge, I added a strip of lace and a sheer piece of fabric behind the image mat.

The image was colored using Copic markers. To create the dots, I simply touched up and down lightly with the tip of my pen. The trick to getting really fun dots is to vary the size with large and small. 

Copic Marker Numbers
Hearts: R22, R24, R56
Dots: R02, R05, R22, R24, R56
Tree: E18, E15, E13
