Goth Valentine

I created this Valentine card with a digital stamp from Delicious Doodles. Please visit the Delicious Doodles shop and check out the wonderful digital stamps for sale there. My card is embellished with two die cut hearts, glitter, and gems. The party hat is something new I picked up on clearance yesterday. It was bright blue with pink dots before I altered it. Which leads me to a tip.

Top Tip: If you have an embellishment you want to use on a creation but it is the wrong color, simply alter it. The party hat in this creation was bright colors and glittered. I used some gesso to cover the print and then I added the color I wanted. I couldn't find my black paint so I used a water color crayon and blended with water to change the hat to black. I then added paper punched dots.
