Love Song



I couldn't wait to ink up this new Penny Black Love Song stamp that I received from Stamper's Dream. I just love the sweet, whimsical style! And this image couldn't be any easier to work with. I just stamped in black, colored in the trunk and birds with Copics, then used dark and light green Copics to trace along the foliage swirls. Last, I sponged on some Tumbled Glass ink around the birds and around the perimeter of the image for a subtle sky feel. It was so easy to color, I almost feel like I cheated! Just for fun, I added some crystal  ultrafine glitter, and two sizes of crystal rhinestones, randomly placed around the branches.

To finish off the card, I added some green felt grass (die-cut with the Fresh Cut Grass Die-Namics by My Favorite Things), velvet ricrac, a button topped with red baker's twine, and a scalloped cork border (die-cut with MFT's Jumbo Scallop Die-Namics). The sentiment is from JustRite's Happy Everything Mini Tag Kit.

The bling shows up a little better in this detail shot:



Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you're having a great day!!
