Cupid’s Love

Haven’t done two challenges in one in awhile, but for me this just worked:

    

ColourQ #224 and Sketchbook Saturday #113, here’s my take:

So FUN!  I started scripting the background in three shades of Studio Calico Mister Huey’s mist, writing ‘Love’ lover and over until I filled it.  I cut out a frame in this lovely pool color and put some vellum to draw the eye inward and tone down the business behind our baby Cupid.  He’s inked in Hero Arts shadow ink in Charcoal – how solidly smooth it stamps!  I colored some Studio Calico wood veneer hearts and arrows and adhered them to the frame.  I decided to perform surgery on Cupid, cutting off the stamped wings and adding trimmed feathers.  He’s recuperating just fine and he’s now considering a tummy tuck.

Thanks for the visit!
