Love Challenge at LOTV

Hello lovely peeps

There's a new challenge on the Lili of the Valley Facebook page and the theme this month is Love.

For my inspiration card I've used the rubber version of 'Meant to Be'. It's available as a digi stamp too and if you're not into colouring it is now available in the new 'Simply Print' range - these are digital versions of the old coloured art pads, brilliant if you need to make a quick card.

I stamped the image onto watercolour paper with black Versafine and coloured it in with Distress Inks splodged onto a tile. The colours I used were shabby shutters, vintage photo, tattered rose, stormy sky,  antique linen, victorian velvet, and black soot.

The sentiment is from the lovely Sketchy Wishes stamp set.
I layered up a 6"x6" card blank with First Edition papers and added some die-cut hearts and foliage. It's finished off with some dotty white organza ribbon.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Crafty Sentiment Designs - lace and/or ribbon

Such beautiful colouring! The way you've shaded the die cut hearts and the little doodle border are two of the attentions to detail that make this card such a stunner. Thank you so much for joining us at Retro Rubber.
