"Whale you be Mine"

Hello everyone!

I'm back with another Love card for Butterfly Reflections Ink.

I am using the sweet "Whale you be mine" mini stamp and die sets from Lawn Fawn.  This is such a versatile set that it can be used with all the other wonderful stamps from Lawn Fawn and it's fun to mix and match them.

I used an A2 sized card base of white card stock and cut out a panel that's 4x5.25.  I found some doilies in my stash from years ago so I used one of those behind the whales and heart.  For the heart I used the larger one from the LF Bug & Kisses set and cut it out with the coordinating dies.

I took a paint brush filled with watered down ink and flicked onto the card to create the background.  Any dye, pigment or water based ink will work for this technique. Just smoosh (technical term!) on a block or non porous surface and add a bit of water then fill up your paint brush and, flick!

I coloured in the whales with my copics and finished them off with the Wink of Stella glitter pen.
Then to finish off the card I used the LF Coral coloured Lawn Trimmings.  On the inside I did stamp the sentiment that comes with the set "whale you be mine" in Memento Onyx Black ink.

Hope you enjoyed today's card.  Be sure to check back tomorrow for another great project!!

Thanks for stopping by!
