Red, White, and....PINK!

Yep, that's right!  This week at Woodware USA we're getting out the February color palate.  I just got some Valentine theme stamps in the mail and I think I'm all set!  Ever since I got this train in preparation for Christmas cards, I KNEW I was going to use it for Valentine's Day cards.  I pictured all kinds of things in the train keep watching my blog...up next St. Patrick's Day!  Should I do green clovers or piles of gold???  HMMMMM...

For this card, I used two sets:  Parcel Train and my newest set called Now and Forever.  I stamped the train and sentiment with Versafine Onyx, then clear embossed.  After that, I went to town coloring the image with my Copics.  I don't always post my Copic colors but today I thought I'd "treat" you to the color palate as I really love how my design turned out and thought some may want to "copy". 

Train and Hearts:  R22, 27, 35, 59; and a little B0000 in the window
Stippling, Wheels and some parts of train:  C1, 2, 3 as my primary shading;  W1, 3 to warm it up a bit; and a little B0000 for depth. 

If you look closely, you will also see I glossed up the hearts by using some Glossy Accents and drew a few added hearts (parts) using my Copic .35 Multiliner.
