Love is in the Air - DB (DT)

The challenge this week at Dilly Bean Friday Challenge is to create something with the theme HEARTS.

I created this card with the Dilly Bean digital stamp called Amalia's Heart Framed. I colored the image with colored pencils and blended with mineral spirits. I then scanned the card into Photoshop and played around with it. The card is embellished with three lace hearts that I tapped with a brown ink pad to distress and age them a bit.

I hope you have been inspired to join the fun at Dilly Beans this week. Please check the site for rules and prizes. Also, take a look at the wonderful creations posted by my fellow DT members. They are a very talented group!
