I taped the oval shape stencil onto a piece of gelli card and dusted very lightly with Tumbled Glass distress ink using my stencil brushes. Leaving the oval stencil in place, I taped over the Leafy Swirl stencil and added a bit more colour.
Then I added some Stream Adirondack around the edges of the oval. Now I could remove both stencils.
I stamped the lovebirds into the centre of the oval using Black archival.
After practising on some scrap paper, I extended the perch for the lovebirds and added a couple of strings for it to hang from. Then I coloured them using my spectrum noir pencils.
Finally I used the plain banners to frame the oval with a personalised message (this needed some practice on scrap paper too), matted it onto two shades of co-ordinating card, and added a couple of pearls to the photo corners (stamped using Black archival and embossed with clear powder) from the journaling set.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like it. If you have time, I'd really like to know what you think. I appreciate all your comments; they are a real source of encouragement for my crafting journey. Till next time. Xxx
