Challenge #3 - Cards for Men - "All My Love"

Good Morning Crafters I hope you've all had a fabulous weekend, and now that we are creeping very quickly towards "Valentines Day" here on Cards for Men we are starting the ball rolling this fortnight by our "All My Love" theme, we are also lucky to be sponsored by Kenny K and I know how popular his images are so I do hope that you will want to take part in this Challenge.

 And they are offering a prize of 5 digi images of winners choice, and here is what they say about themselves.

  I'm sure you're all familiar with the wonderful work of Kenny K's Shop but what about the man (and woman) behind those wonderful creations. Take a look here to see their journey,

We were lucky enough to have been given several images to play with and I chose this fabulous one "Hug" to play with and you will find it here.

 Dont you think this pair are gorgeous and giving so much love to one another, I have printed them onto white card then used my copic pens to colour them. Afterwards I used a large Nestabilitie Heart die to cut them out, then used a Xcut Heart Die for the mount, you carnt actually see it to well but it has lots of cut outs on it and luckily it was big enough to show the mount better. The sentiment is another of my stash stamp and this also was created in the same way as the image.
The card base is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and the papers I used are from the Bo Bunny "Crush" paper pad, and then on top I used a Memory Box Heart border die, and this was placed along the bottom of the card. I then placed my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I used a La La Land heart border and I cut it half and placed it in the top two corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot, and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "All My Love" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
