Cupid Stella

I had to try out some more of my new paper and I couldn't resist using Stella again...I think she is a hoot!  I like that the DP is a bit non-traditional color-wise.  Can't say that I've made too many blue Valentines....  Stella is colored with pencils and accented with's hard to see in the photo, but I even added a touch to her blue eye shadow....  Now that's hot!

Image: Totally Stampalicious (Bugaboo)
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Spring Rain, Pure Poppy, and True Black, Pinecone Press DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
