Love You Ian Card

Hi everyone! Samantha here, filling in for Michelle today.

I wanted to show you a cute little Valentine's Day card I made recently. This was created using the adorable Oh Boy Ian single stamp, from The Greeting Farm. Isn't he just adorable?! 

I don't actually have my usual colors list as I am away from home, but I wanted to share this card anyway because I think it is a great example of SHINY hair, which is what our challenge this week is about.

To achieve my shiny hair look, I colored Ian's hair in a halo type pattern. I used a much lighter color for the ring part, and then darkened his hair as it got further from the ring. The ring part is significantly lighter than the rest of his hair, which gives the illusion that his hair is really shiny! For an even brighter, shinier look, you could even leave the small ring white.

For the final touch around my image, I inked around the edges of the image with the Tim Holtz Ink Applicator Tool and some aqua ink.

Now don't forget to enter this week's challenge! There is still time to play along.
