Love birds

Just playing around with some stamps from Memory Box.

The background is stamped in Antique Linen on Ivory cardstock to give a shadow effect. I sponged the edges with brown dye ink.

I added the little heart notes with the Just a Note sentiment using a red dye ink. The ribbon is this gorgeous ribbon I purchased at my LSS. The birds are colored using my watercolor pencils.

I have been working on lots of other projects that I can't share just yet...


  • Memory Box - Alpha Background E996
  • Memory Box - Love Birds E1173
  • Memory Box - Just a Note - B864
  • Memory Box - Heart Notes A1171
  • Ranger Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Fire Brick Red
  • Memento - Rich Cocoa
  • Versafine - Vintage Sepia
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities - Label 4

Thanks for stopping by...
