Valentines, Candy Kisses and a Sneak Peek

I decided it was time to get going on my Valentines for this year. I could not resist using this sweet couple from the soon-to-be-released Carnival Dreams mini plate from Rogue Redhead Designs.

I got the inspiration for this design from the fabulous sketch on Freshly Made Sketches!

To match the free-flowing design of the image, I used a marker watercolor technique I learned on Technique Junkies to color the image in. This great paper seemed like the perfect fit.
