VALENTINES CUTIE

Does this little guy say Valentines Day wishes or what? The papers are from the January Kit from I Am A Scrapaholic but by just adding a couple themed stamps they were transformed to a Valentines Day greeting.

A note to remember on stamping: I stamped the little cupid mailman on a separate piece of cardstock and did a small amount of coloring in and added some glitter glue. This way I could experiment and I could also stamp it a couple times to get a good image, plus I could accent it with this red, scallop circle to help it stand out better. If I had tried to stamp him on the card itself, I would have possibly not gotten a good image the first time and I might not have liked the way I colored him. By doing it on a separate piece, I have room for errors and I also have room to experiment.
Another note is that I accented the stamped black flourish design with the Diamond Glitter Dimensional Fabric Paint. This is a kind of glitter glue but when it is dry, you still see the color and the image that is under it. A great way to add just a little bit of glitter.
