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. So...here 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
Modsquad Challenge - Have a heart
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - It must be love
