Valentine and new inchies!

Of course, I am putting up last Monday's inchie with tomorrows.....I hope it's better late than never!

"Electrifying" was the topic for this inchie.  
I remembered a funny stamp I had, which made
me think of an espresso buzz, so I stamped it 
very simply, highlighted the eyes, and added
gold to the edges.

Fishy is tomorrow's topic.  My background is 
painted with Lumiere paints, and this little guy
looks like he's guilty of something, doesn't he?
Very fishy.......

And this is a collage I made using a video tutorial by Christy Tomlinson.  

I love how it turned out, and decided to make a 5 X 8 Valentine's card for my hubby.  Doing a smaller version (smaller than the suggested canvas version) was a good way to get started, and to find out what I really needed to have on-hand for the next attempt.

This involved collage, painting, texturing, doodling, rub-ons, and stamping.  I don't consider myself a doodler, but I am happy with this!

Thanks for stopping by!
