"I'm in the mood for love....."

"...simply because you're near me!!" Should I be singing that to a stamp?? Hmmm...well I simply adore little Sophia since she made her big debut on Friday evening. Today I was doing my daily blog browsing when I stumbled upon this fabulous background by Faith Hofrichter and I just knew I had to duplicate it. I used some swirls from Autumn Leaves that I got a while back from the Paper Pretties Boutique and stamped them with Brilliance Black (it's must richer and gives a better image with acrylic stamps). Then I added some dots & hearts with my Signo pen. I just adore this idea and I challenge you all to try it out. Just add a few dashes and dots, swirls and doodles, whatever your heart desires. You'll be delighted and how it makes the background pop without overtaking the main focal image. I colored sweet Sophia using my Copic Sketch markers (again purchased at Paper Pretties), I can't get enough of these. They are so easy to use and no drying marks! Love it!!

My first big order from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog is scheduled to arrive tomorrow!! YAY!!! I can't wait to cut into all the new rubbah and get my hands dirty.

P.S. Dottie, you said you would email me your mailing info but I've yet to receive it....send it again, would you please? This paper and mailbox are dying to travel to their new home. ;)
