Love Birds

Hi there,

it's time for the Stamp Tramps September Blog Hop over at Skipping Stones Design and this is my creation:

  • create a background with Alcohol Inks (Pink Sherbet, Raspberry, Wild Plum) and Alcohol Ink Blending Solution on a piece of Lanavanguard
  • cut out a heart from a white cardbase
  • adhere the Alcohol Ink panel behind the cutout
  • stamp the Love Birds from the Skipping Stones Design Let it be set with Archival Ink (Black Soot) - I used my MISTI because the Lanavanguard is a rather slick surface and I didn't want to mess things up
  • use Delta Markers and the Distress Marker Spritzer to customize Doodlebug Design Sprinkles (Lily White)
