SBS Teen Scene Valentine Preview: Rio

Happy New Year! After taking a few days off from bloggyland, I am back and I am going to share a card made with one of the latest Simply B Stamps. This latest collection is the Teen Scene Valentine. And it’s all about love and steampunk! Which, you probably know I adore steampunk. What’s funny, is that my Mom is the one who told me about it a couple of years ago. She loves it even more than me, I think! But enough about me…here is “A Heart for You Rio.”

I love her birdie friend! He is supposed to be a raven, but I thought that I needed some blue on the card.

I colored the image with my watercolor markers and my Copics (I officially own a whopping 10 Copics now!). I added the gears in the background by using a Tim Holtz screen and Distress ink.

I added a few rhinestones for some sparkle, and a couple of punched cogs. My sentiment is from K and Co.
I’ll be back tomorrow with another sneaky peek from this sweet and funky new line. Be sure to visit the SBS Blog to see what the rest of the DT gals have done with this new image of Rio.  Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I entered this card into the current Paper Creations Ink challenge: Die Cuts and/or Punches. My gears are punches.
