I just love this little Cutie Pie from the new Valentine plate from Artistic Outpost. These images are sooooo 1950s. They remind me of the style of the Valentine cards I shared with my friends.

All inks are Tim Holtz Distress Inks and all cardstock and embossing powders are from StampinUp!®

1. I started with Whisper White cardstock and stamped the heart image randomly with embossing ink. I then added white embossing powder and heated. I then applied Lipstick Ink with a sponge over the entire background. I also stamped the image again on a separate piece of cs and applied red embossing powder. I trimmed the red heart closely.

2. I stamped the majorette image on white cs with Black Soot ink and colored with an aqua pen and several ink colors (Fired Brick, Lipstick and Aged Mahogany). I applied Krylon Gold Leafing pen to the fringe on the shoulders and added the dog tag. I trimmed it out and mounted it to the background with pop dots.

3. I trimmed a small piece of red cardstock and attached it to the hand. I added the red embossed heart and a bow of RockCandy Rayon Ribbon.

4. I attached all to a red cardstock background.

5, The Cutie Pie was stamped in Fired Brick and edged with Lipstick then mounted on a scrap of red and attached to the card.

Hope you're enjoying these images from Artistic Outpost. More tomorrow!

Thanks for all the sweet comments!
Anita, I used an aqua pen and my stamp pads to do the coloring.
Lynn, I showed my age on my blog when I said this reminded me of the Valentines I shared with my friends in the '50s. I'm proud of my wrinkles - earned every one of them!
