Digi Doodle Studios June Challenge!

Hello Everyone!
Today marks the start of a new Challenge over on the Digi Doodle Studios Challenge Blog for June. You have all month to create something with the theme of "Special Day". Think Father's Day, birthday, wedding, anniversaries. Today I am using the DDS digital stamp called "Valentino"  to celebrate Father's Day.
I started by sizing and then printing my digital image with my printer. Then using my Copic Markers coloured "Valentino" in to match my papers. I hand drew in some plaid lines for a fun look to his top. The designer papers are also from Digi Doodles and are called "Coffee Break". I made the sentiment up myself on my computer and printed it. I thought it went well with the image. My card layout was created using an older MFT Blueprints 1 die set. I don't think it's available anymore but sure helps make your layout come together fast. I decided to ink all the edges of my papers with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I think it helps make everything pop a bit more.
On the inside of my card, I used some of the leftover "Coffee Break" papers to decorate it and added a sentiment from the DDS "Encouragement" digital sentiments collection.

Here is the original Valentino digital image from Digi Doodle Studios. I have to admit a "boo boo" I made LOL. I wasn't paying attention when I cut the image out with My Brother Cut N Scan, and made a mess of the hearts. I had already coloured my image and didn't want to waste it, so I left the hearts off. Valentino is much cuter with the heart song notes coming from the birds. Lesson learned lol!
