Welcome to another Fabulous Digi Bells Release Blog Hop

Welcome to another fun, and inspiring Digi Bells Blog hop. We are celebrating the newest Digital Stamp from Elisabeth Bell.  This may be a Valentine themed image, but I think this little sweetie can be used for more than just a Valentine. 

You should have arrived here from Nikky's Blog, but if not, why not hop over to the Digi Bells blog where you can find the beginning of the blog hop, and join us for some fab inspiration from our Digi Bell girls.

**On Cupids Cloud**

Elisabeth did such an amazing job creating this...
This is what she has to say about him.
The idea of Cupid, sitting on a heart cloud, came to my mind. But instead of him aiming his bow and heart arrow at some poor, unsuspecting victim, I decided to take a different, more gentle, "outside of the box," approach. So instead of shooting his bow, he is using it as a fishing pole (lol!), and dangling from the string are roses and keys! His quiver is filled with more roses, and his heart arrows are stuck in the cloud either side of him. We can see his little, "plumber's crack," (the cute factor) as he sits in the dip of the heart cloud. And his cloth toga (that he obviously doesn't care to wear haha) drapes loosely over his legs and the clouds. On the far side of the cloud, we can also see a collection of more keys and hearts, and a few more roses resting beside him. Cupid is set with his arsenal of roses and keys to unlock the hearts of those in need of love!

I fell in love with this adorable digi the second I saw it.  How could I not?  This darling little cupid has the cutest little bum, doesn't he?  SOOOOO CUTE!!!

I have decided to make a heart shaped candy holder, but rather than it being a box with a lid, it's open at the top, and stands up.  I have included hershey kiss "roses" as well as heart shaped lollipops.

How about a little bit closer?
You just have to see those adorable little cheeks (both sets of cheeks) *ha ha*

I used copics for coloring, and then did quite a bit of heat embossing in gold.  The cloud has some white puffy pen added for a more fluffy appearance.  I really had a lot of fun with this little cupid. 
Everything else you see here, was simply taken from my scrap stash??? 
(Well, the rosebuds, were not scraps, but I did alter their color)
