Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I'm using an image called 'Unlocked' to create my Valentine themed card today. 

My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers. 

The colours I've used are: R05, R02, R01, BG11, BG10, BG96, BG93, BG90, E35, E33, E31, E30, W5, W3, W1, W00, C5, C3, C1, C00. 

Here’s a close up of the image.

The image has been cut out and layered using the Large Classic & Scallop Oval Nestabilites. My base card has been layered with some pretty papers from the XO Collection by Kaisercraft. 

Stamps: Unlocked (The Paper Shelter)
Card: Naturals White & Watermelon Wonder (Stampin' Up), Cryogen White cardstock
Papers: XO 6 1/2" Paper Pad (Kaisercraft)
Ink & Markers: Copic Markers
Dies & Punches: Large Classic & Scallop Oval Nestabilities
Accessories: Pearls
