A little birdy says Happy Valentine's


Well I don't really know what he's saying!  But it doesn't matter cos it's in French and that's the language of love....

For this card I've put together a few stamp sets.  The french words are from French Foliage (so he's probably twittering on about autumn!!) and my little hero is from one of the frames in Four Frames.  I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to just pick out the little bird and stamped onto my Whisper White card base.  I then again using a Stampin' Write Marker this time in Real Red I inked up the heart from Tiny Tags.  I like the way the ink pools on the stamp and gives a bit of depth when stamping.  Stampin' Write Markers are great for this and picking out just the details you want stamped.  I then masked both the heart and bird and stamped the word in Basic Grey after stamping off first.  This was to make the background a little more subtle.  The Mr & Mrs also from Tiny Tags was again inked with my black marker then stamped off a couple of times before punching out using the Jewellery Tag Punch.  A Basic Rhinestone gem anchors the tag to the heart.

This is for the LESS IS MORE challenge this week to use birds.

Thanks for stopping in by.  I love to read your comments they are very much appreciated. x
