Young Love


Isn't young love wonderful? There's something about that first part of a relationship that has a sweetness and tenderness that doesn't usually stay. But it's so precious while it's there.

Kissing Edwin and Shy Kissing Tilda remind me of how sweet and precious that first part of young love can be. I wanted to keep them innocent and simple, nothing too complicated for them. They both are from the Love Collection that you can pick up from Summer's great store, Roses on Paper. I fell in love with them when I was them.

I colored them with copics and added some distressed inks to the background. I cut Edwin out and popped him up just a bit. I love this sketch from Katherina at Whiff of Joy. This is a sketch that I'll use over and over! The background papers are from DCWV's new Latte stack and I love the Prima flowers and Grapes and Leaves Dew Drops and Crystal Stickles. I also used SU ticket corner punch.

Let's all remember the innocence and simplicity that comes with young love. I wish it for us all at one time or another in our lives.

Card ingredients: Kissing Edwin by Magnolia Stamps, Kissing Edwin's Shy Tilda by Magnolias, Stickles, Dew Drops, Prima Flowers, copics, Latte Matstack by DCWV
