Cupid's Arrow ~

Hi all!  It's Alyssa today with a fun little valentine's day card.  I really wanted to focus today on skin shading and use some of my newer skin tones.  This cute little Cupid is a free digital stamp I found somewhere in my blog hopping.  ETA: This Cupid was a freebie that was given away on the Make It Crafty blog for Christmas.  He is now for sale.  He's just adorable and to color!  I'll start with the close up of the coloring:

His skin is colored with E000, E00, E02, E11 & E13.  The shaded or shadowed areas are colored first with E13 and blended out with E11.  These shades can also be used for a more Latino or tan color skin.  Next, I blended with E00 and finally E000.  The E02 is for the blush in his cheeks. 
The gold banner around his waist is colored with Y21, Y26, & Y28.  I really wanted it to blend with the gold ribbon I used, so I used a clear glitter pen, scribbled some on and moved the glitter around with an aquapainter. 
The sentiment is embossed on a heart and leads you to the inside of the card. 
Which reads...
Hope you are all off to a great start on your weekend!  You still have a few days to play along with iCopic color challenge #12 - White, Yellow & Pink for a chance to win some fabulous SP & Company stamps!  Thanks for stopping by!  :o) lyss

Hi Alyssa, I am sorry for the confusion hun. Carisa was just looking out for my interests and wasn't aware that I gave this little guy away as a Christmas present for a short time to all my followers.

He looks absolutely adorable and I just LOVE the idea for the sentiments. Just perfect.

Hugs xxoo

LOL, Sorry about that! *blushing* I missed Zoe's post giving him away on Christmas. With all the digital stealing, I got a little bit ahead of myself!!! I think your card is great and the sentiments you used ARE perfect.

Alyssa, this card is SO the image and great coloring!

Fabulous card Alyssa, your colouring is amazing, the skin tones are wonderful and that gold sash is perfect. Oh i need to practise to get half as good as you and maybe buy some more copics.
