The Paper Funday Challenges February 2022

Hello and Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends!  Today begins a new challenge month at The Paper Funday Challenge Blog.  The challenges are Always Anything Goes with an Optional Twist.  The Twist this month is Hugs & Kisses.  This twist is an easy one as we have entered the month of Love!

Our sponsors this month are the generous All Dressed Up and Polkadoodles.  These 2 sponsors have the sweetest images and for my DT project, I've used the Happy Valentine's digital image from All Dressed Up.

My card measures 5.5" square and I've keep the design sweet and simple; no dimension or bells and whistles were added.  I plan on sending this card overseas to a Swap Buddy and I didn't want it to be too bulky.

I've colored the image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and rounded the bottom corners of the focal, mat and cardbase for interest.  I did add some black dots here and there; I thought about splattering with black ink but decided not to...didn't want to risk messing up the colored image.

Please join us this month at The Paper Funday Challenges.  We would love to see your designs.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
