Masking, Doodling and White Space

I'm so excited that my cards have been a 
hit at work, and love that my coworkers
are now asking for "custom cards."
I was specifically asked for a wedding
card with an aquarium theme 
and not too fussy.
Here's what I came up with...

Lawn Fawn Critters in the Sea, Lawn Fawn Feathered Friends, 
Lawn Fawn Milk and Cookies, Lawn Fawn Hearts die,
Inktense Water Pencils with Dove Blender, Distress Ink in Cracked Psitachio,
Hero Arts India Ink black

I did a little masking and mirror stamping to get the 
sweet girl octopus.  Added some doodled eyelashes
and wedding rings to give a wedding flair.
Here's a closeup...

I really liked their little wedding bands and added a little gemstone 
on the girl!

Do you see that lovely watercolored background?
That is the latest Distress Ink color
Cracked Pistachio!!!

With all that white space I'll be entering this in the next

I also wanted to share a few of my 
Valentine grams that another coworker asked for...

and some closeups...

I've said it before, but I'm in love with the
Simon Says Stamp stitched dies!
The square ones make the perfect candy gram...
on the back will have Ghirardelli chocolates attached!!

This will be entered in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Ok thanks for letting me share and
MAHALO for stopping by!!
