Your Biggest Fan

Back today with another sweet design from Marcy’s new Va-Va-Valentines Digital Release!  I love every single one of these little images and it’s been fun to give them some colour and put them into cards.  Even though they’re considered Valentines - I’m going to use this one for my niece who just had a birthday, she’s a basketball player, so I think the play on words will work really well.  I love the retro-feel to the fan.  

I used really limited colours on this one, just 5 markers to colour.  You can see on the picture below that I coloured the {heart} fan blades in grey first and accented them a little with the BG markers to tie it together, but still have that metallic feel.  I also wanted to create the feeling of movement throughout the card, so I found a fun swirly embossing folder for the background to accent the swirlys of the air from the fan.  

Some cute x’s and o’s paper to accent and anchor the bottom, and a couple of stitched hearts with silver metallic sequins as accent.  

Here’s a picture of all the images - aren’t the ALL darling?  And at only $6 it’s a steal!  Limited time only!  So I hope you grab them up!  

Don’t forget that you have 5 days left in our January Power & Spark Challenge to Grab A Map!  A $50 Power Poppy Shopping Spree is on the line!  

Now hop on over to the rest of the Bloom Brigade playing along today...

Beautiful card and coloring, Christine, and I know your niece loved this card. I love the gradation of color and love how you shadowed the word "fan" along with the sweet accents. These are just the sweetest digis. Beautifully done! Hugs!
