Best Friends Valentine

 I'm so very pleased to introduce to you the latest Rogue Redhead Designs, LLC half plate:  RRD0014 Christmas Cheer

I chose these two lovely girls from the set to stamp and color.  This is quickly becoming my new favorite stamp!  You can see my post on the Rogue Redhead Designs blog HERE

I stamped them onto a ready made tag from my friend Heather Hudson's digital collage collection:
My Artistic Adventures Vintage Shabby Oval Tags printed onto Stampin' Up Very Vanilla card stock
Word labels from My Artistic Adventures Vintage Birds Roses Valentine Tags 

I used Ranger Distress Markers to color and edge papers:
vintage photo, bundled sage, picket fence, spun sugar, and wild honey 
Copic ciao Y11 for hair
Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen to highlight pink dress and pink roses
Clear Glaze pen on hobnails to accentuate oval
white pen
pink ribbon from stash

This is a brand new challenge site and this is the first challenge.  I really have several favorite stamps but I love all the Rogue Redhead vintage stamps in their Vintrigue line.  I'm a sucker for rubber stamps depicting vintage little girls. 

Frilly and FunkyNew Year's Resolution --second entry for this challenge.  As stated in a previous post, I want to make time to keep up with the happenings and latest artwork of my blogging buddies.  I've become "best friends" with several who reside in cyberspace.
