     Even though it's only mid January the Valentine products and cards are out in full force.  Today I'm sharing a card using stamps from Purple Onion Designs.
     For my image panel I stamped part of the Birch Tree Background and added a little color to the bark with Copics.  Next I stamped the sweet Chloe bunny, masked her and stamped part of the birch trees again.  I guess it's kind of a spotlight technique although I did add a little color to the background.

Copics Used:
bunny E31, E33, E35, E51, R20, R30
clothing R37
trees W1, W5
grass YG17, YG23, YG25
flower Y15, TR68, YG97

     How are your Valentine makes coming along?  Hope your week is fannnn-tastic!
