Nine Years Ago...

... Dan and I were married at Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA. Where does the time go? I made this card for him using Stamping Bella's Beeemine Huggabugg. Happy Anniversary, sweetie!

I used Julee's Mojo Monday #72 sketch. Her sketch was just perfect for this little image. After stamping her, I colored her with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils/odorless mineral spirits. The first time I attempted to color her hair black with my markers did not turn out well. She looked like she had 4 eyes. I ended up re-stamping my image and coloring her hair with pencils and blending them with OMS - worked much better! This also doubles as my card for the OCC challenge to use two or more hearts.
