Cupid calendar page

     I'm not going to brag about having this calendar page done cause March's isn't done yet.  LOL
     Our wonderful Mau has chosen us a theme of "Spots and Dot's" for this weeks challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.
     Since red is so hard to shade correctly I took the easy way out and paper pieced my heart.  This little sweetie is Mo's "Cupid in Love" which can be found in Mo's store.  The papers are a combo of this years and last years Valentine collections from Michaels.  I added some Martha Stewart microbeads to the die cut hearts for some fun.  Cupid was printed twice and I popped his head and wings up on foam.  His arms and the bow and arrow were adhered directly onto the bottom layer.

Copics Used:
skin--E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R30
hair--E31, E33, E35, E50
bow--E53, E55, E57
arrow--E57, R59
wings--W1, W3
