Oh Snap It's Valentine's Day

Hello Everyone!

Happy Sunday! Today I'm am sharing a card I made for my little Brother David Meza and his girlfriend Lala. I'm also happy to say that they are expecting a little baby boy, due sometime around my birthday in April. :P Woot Woot! I can't wait to meet another nephew! I wanted to personalize a Valentine Card for them. My brother is a photographer, biker, teacher, public speaker, hipster and all sorts of other things but his main profession is photography.

I used the stamp Chloe and Sam - Love You and for the little black and white insta-photo or polaroid photo I decided to use Sam from Chloe and Sam but I masked Chloe's face and then stamped Chloe - Stay Cool so yea same girl different stamp. LOL

I colored everything with Copic markers this time and I made sure to color Lala's hair in Warm Grays but David's hair is jet black and very shiny so I used the Cool Grays for his hair.  The papers are from Recollections Valentine 6x6 paper pad it's an older pad but I gotta use it to buy more right?

Chloe and Sam - Love You
Chloe's Hair W9, W7, W5 and W3
Sam's Hair C9, C7, C5 and C3 and pants too.
easy peasy... lemon squeezy
Chloe's Dress R35, R37, R46 and R39
Dies are from My Creative Time and from My Favorite Things

I kind of sort of forgot to add the glasses  before but I managed to use my embossing pad
and Whispers Opaque Black for the glasses. I was scared to mess up the image while 
making the card but I will definitely add some Glossy Accents to make the lens.

When making the card I was inspired by this photo of them. I didn't take that photo but I think it was a selfie... and probably David took it. LOL  

so with some masking and coloring with my Copic Warm Grays
I came up with this image.  Please excuse the scribbles...
it's my 3 year old Daenerys' artwork she wanted to add legs to 
the area that wasn't stamped. LOL 

Here it is all cropped and in a tiny polaroid picture die 
from My Creative Time.

I hope they like it and I hope you like it too.
