Just Add Ink - Color Challenge #75

Salutations! Had some time after a busy weekend to play in my craft room tonight. I created a card for Just Add Ink's Color Challenge.

Here are the colors.

Here is my card!

I love the sentiment stamp and always wanted to use it with numbers in the background. I have the numbers template from The Crafters Workshop and made my own ink spray with soft suede ink from Stampin Up and I used the cherry cobbler ink with a florish stamp all on vanilla paper. The larger heart is a template and I attached book paper to it and colored it with cherry cobbler ink. The smaller heart, cut out of book paper is a Tim Holtz stamp from his artistry collection called heartfelt. I'm in love with birds right now. I've been using them on so many things. This bird was cut from grungepaper (Tim Holtz bird and bird cage die) and painted then added the stamps. After not creating anything all weekend this was just what I needed.

Ivory and cherry cardstock
Book paper
Ink: cherry cobbler, soft suede, jet black archival ink
Numbers template from The Crafters Workshop
Heart template
Stamps: sentiment by Dawn Houser, Florentine scroll background stamp by Hero Arts; Heart and other florishes by Tim Holtz Artistry Collection called Heartfelt
Black Ribbon from HOTP Vintage Rose Collection
