Challenge #228 at Stampotique this week is
Use only hues of REDS and PINKS

Starting with the background, I blended Distress Ink 'victorian velvet' over the cardstock.  Next "My Heart" was stamped randomly using Distress Ink 'worn lipstick', along with "Kiss" ("Mwah & Kiss").  "Mwah" was stamped in the top corner with 'jet black' Archival Ink.

"Toucan and Budgie" were stamped onto extra card, coloured with Prismacolor pencils in various pinks (with just a touch of yellow), and fussy cut.  A piece of washi tape was added before "Toucan" was popped onto dimensionals.

A black cardstock border was added before adhering onto pink cardstock.

All stamps are from Stampotique.

Thanks for looking.

Happy Crafting!
