Thursday Challenge @ MelJen's Designs

Hello Friends! And welcome to another challenge with MelJen's Designs. This week the challenge is

I {heart} You!
Use hearts on your card/project

This is a really fun one especially around this time of year. I chose to work with the lovely, Queen of Diva Hearts. I think she is just gorgeous! Look at her lips!

She's printed onto my favorite card stock and die cut with a stitched journaling die. She's colored with Copic markers and I've added glitter to her dress with ClearWink of Stella and a glitter pen. After coloring her, I dusted on pink distress ink and added lots of bling. I added Liquid Pearls to her necklace and bracelet for interest and texture. I used my gold Wink of Stella glitter brush on her scepter. I wish you could see all the really is fantastic! Under the image, a row of hearts has been die cut into the patterned paper. I slipped a glittered piece of red card stock behind it for even more sparkle! I adhered the focal image with dimensional adhesive.

There's a lot going on here. But all very worth it. I just LOVE MelJen's Divas! I created a label for it, so you'll always be able to find them all in one place.

I hope you will make time to join our challenge, you could win FREE digital images of your choice. Just remember to use a MelJen's Designs image on your project in order to be included in the random drawing. And please take a moment to stop by the Design Team blog to see all of the wonderful projects the DT members have created to share with you.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I appreciate the visit.

Wow, Barb, what a beauty!!! Love how you coloured her with all the glitter and sparkle!
(the funny thing is, I've used her also for this week's challenge :) )

Your diva is gorgeous, Barb. All the sparkle is great. I love the hearts die cut into the DP. The ribbon pops. Your coloring is to die for, as always. I just love the card :)

Oh my goodness, Barb! This is a fabulous card! I love each and every detail you added to sparkle her up and make her stand out. Love the papers and I agree, the divas are fantastic all around. You just took this one to the next level. Extremely well done!
