Tag, You're It! #65 With Lisa Arana

I can't believe a month has passed since I last posted, yikes!  Where does the time go?  Well, Valentine's Day quickly approaches and our featured artist, Lisa Arana, created a wonderful tag that really got me in the mood.  Here's my Valentine tag:
 Here's the inspiration from Lisa:

I kept Lisa's red, black, and white colors, and added pink.  I loved Lisa's ribbon, so I kept pretty close to it.  I also added a banner for the sentiment.  Her sweet little critter has his arms up, which made me think of the little girl image from Mamma Elephant's Carried Away.  Her lower half is popped up on two layers of foam to give some dimension.  Her left hand was stamped again and altered to look like she's holding on.

Now I must confess that I forgot about her buttons before I took these photos.  She now has shiny, red buttons on her coat.  Whew, I know you were really agonizing over that, weren't you.  Ha! Okay, if you're like me, you didn't really notice.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: ME Carried Away, SSS Sending Happy Thoughts
Dies:  SSS Clipping Heart
Copics:  C1,3,5, R20,24,27,29,59, RV52,55,27, E000,00,11,33,37,29
Inks/Powder: Versamark, Memento Tuxedo Black, SSS super fine white embossing powder
Other:  Ribbon I received from JJ Bolton some years ago, Embroidery floss from Hobby Lobby
