I started it at our monthly stamping group meeting. Another stamper and I were playing around with the idea of sponging with a negative mask (Stampin' Up's Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit) using the limited color choices we had with us at the time.. This combination of colors I came up with is a bit unusual for a Valentine, but I like it.
The old Basic Grey Design paper I've used for many projects, along with the Island Indigo and Early Espresso Stampin' Up card stock work perfectly for a mat with the Pool Party and Soft Suede Stampin' Up inks on the card. Stampin' Up matching markers were used to highlight and shadow the stamping.
The edges of the main panel, grass and branches are sponged with Pool Party, Soft Suede, Island Indigo and Early Espresso inks.
Stamps used:Stampin' Up - Filled With Love, Valentine defined
Inkadinkado - Branches With Berries - one of the Stamping Gear sets
So now I'm a card ahead for making next year's Valentines.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.
