All You Need Is Love

This week Kylie Bertucci is hosting another International Blog Highlight, and the theme is 'Love'.

I was having trouble coming up with an idea for this weeks highlight until I found inspiration from the latest challenges for Stamp, Ink, Paper and the Global Design Project.  

When I saw the Stamp, Ink, Paper colour challenge I instantly knew which stamp I was going to use, and then after seeing the sketch challenge over at the Global Design Project, I came up with this card.

Using the Definitely Dahlia stamp by Stampin' Up! I applied Soft Sky to the centre of the flower, followed by Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy (as I didn't have the corresponding Stampin' Write Markers, I used a wet paint brush to pick up the ink and apply it to the stamp).

After stamping the image on some Whisper White cardstock, I heat embossed a greeting and some hearts from the Watercolour Wishes Card Kit onto a strip of vellum using White embossing powder and then wrapped it around the cardstock.

I then layered it onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock and then onto a Soft Sky card base.

And that's how simple it was to make.

Hope you enjoyed this weeks card.  Don't forget to visit Kylie's page (after 6:30pm (AEST), Friday 8 April 2016) and vote on your favourite creations!

I have also entered this card in the following challenges:
