I am not much of a card maker as I prefer more unusual pieces, but I do enjoy making my version of Scrapings. As mentioned in the last issue, Scraplings are mini cards that are 1.25" x 4.25" with the emphases being that they are made of scraps. I have never been a conformist and tend to do what I like in my art so I make my Scraplings any size I like, and go heavy on the scraps and anything and everything is a good candidate for use on a Scraping.
Since this issue is dedicated to Valentine's Day, Love and Romance I though something a little different was in order. I am not really a pink person and pink and yellow seem to be the two most unused colors in my art, but I have always consider Valentines day an exception to the norm for me.
The Scraplings on the left is mainly pink with a little black thrown in for extra drama. The main focal point for this card is actually an Inchie I made for the last issue of the Ezine but did not use because it did not go with the Asian theme I was trying to archive. The main focal point is one of my Little Charmers faces. This little sweetie has been colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with orderless turpentine using paper stumps. The little black text on the top left corner of the Inchie is just a small piece I had leftover after punching out a small square from one of my new Digital Engravings Background designs.
