SSS142 - Non-traditional Valentine

Happy weekend, everyone!  For this week's Sweet Stop Sketch challenge, we are challenging you to make a non-traditional Valentine.  I have to admit.....I found this to be tricky particularly since there are so many cute Valentine's Day  papers around now yet they are all in traditional colors.  Then I remembered that I had this super cute Birdie Brown digital stamp called "A boy with a rose."   

I colored him up with copics and here's the run down on what I used:

Skin:  E11, E00, E000 and R20 and R30 for cheeks
Hair:  E35, E53, E51
Hat and stripes on shirt:  B37, B45, B41
Shirt:  B00 and B0000
Shorts:  E34, E31, and E30
Shoes:  E59, E57, E55
Rose: R29, R24, R05, YG17, YG13, YG11
Shadow:  BG10

I sponged some A Muse latte ink around the image.  Have you tried those inks yet?  Love them!  I used PTI white, kraft, spring rain, dark chocolate and vintage cream CS and the DSP is from the Jillibean Soup Homemade 6 Bean Soup 6x6 paper pad.  That pretty ribbon is is 5/8" brown/white grosgrain two tone ribbon from the Ribbon Carousel.  I used the PTI Tiny Tags stamped set to make that heart and I stamped it with A Muse french roast ink.  

Here is the sketch:
