You Make My Heart Smile - Vera Lane Digi

 There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.    Jane Austen

Copic markers, red enamel dots, gold leafing pen, white felt flower

Hey there,

This little Vera Lane sweetie has been begging for some Copic attention for ages and I think Valentines Day is perfect for her card debut.   One of the things I like most about Vera Lane images is that I can fancy them up a bit while keeping their quirky cuteness. 

This is how my little lady looked before her Copics makeover, and while I think she's super adorable, I knew a touch of eye makeup and lipstick would bring out her lovely Betty Davis eyes.  Then, of course, her dress needed some style to go with her jazzy new look   How fun it is to customize these darling images to make them come alive!

I originally planned to add some doodle flowers and butterflies to the background, but when I saw this cute stylish frame in Cricut Design Space,  I decided on a simpler design.  I sized the frame layers to fit a 6 x 6 card.  My image is off-set to make room for my sentiment, which I printed with the Cricut writing feature. I finished with pretty digital bokeh heart paper in the background. 

Applying makeup to my stamps and digital images is a little more rewarding than applying my own makeup.  You know when you stamp on textured paper and your image doesn't come out clear?  Exactly! 

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and customize your artwork to make it your own.
