Love Birds

Today I pulled out my Winnie & Walter 'So Tweet' stamp set.  I wanted to make some Valentine cards, but I didn't want the traditional red and white and pink. is my non-traditional Valentine....
For the hearts, I punched some different size hearts from card stock, then sponged white ColorBox pigment ink through them onto kraft card stock, moving them around until I had what I wanted.  When dry, I colored the tops of the hearts in ombre fashion with colored pencils.

I stamped the love from the same set onto the bottom of the card, then the branch, and the birdy much sentiment.  I colored the love in with white acrylic paint, and went over the outline again with black permanent pen.  I attached the panel to a black A2 card.  Added a strip of black and white pp along the left edge.

For the birds, I watercolored them with Derwent Inktense pencils.  I added some white dots with a gel pen, fussy-cut the birds, and attached them with foam tape.  

All-in-all, an easy card, but a really fun one to make.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Love is in the air

Cards In Envy - Love you so much
