Love you is all around

Hi thanks for popping in
and a warm Welcome to my new followers. :) 

Hope you have had a good day and enjoying the weekend.
the sun is out. Just had a call from my sister from
Switzerland checking everything ok....
sounds like she is enjoying the time away.

Here is my card for today which I have just finished.

I was playing with the gelli plate
and been using several different things to 
get to the picture you see today. 

I used a brayer to ink up the gelli plate with different colours
placed the Clarity heart stencil onto the gelli, 
then the punchinella on top. 

But first I had inked up 2 Clarity stamp rabbits so that they looked as if 
they were kissing, put on the masks.

Lined up the rabbits to the stencil so that "hopefully" 
the heart would be in the right place.

This image shows the gelli plate over the stamped, masked image :) 

But I had already taken a print off the gelli plate before I used the image
you see below the one to the left first then the one to the right second.

It took several tries and different effects to 
get to the one I liked. 

Next was to put the words on
I used the line Sentiments from Clarity Stamps
only using the words Love You 
but these were from two different lines of words
so masked off what I did not want.

Then I used another Clarity Stamp to put the 
love flowers on, used my watercolour paints to 
make the grass tufts etc. 

Then final part was to highlight the love heart just 
above the rabbits. 

Next to cut down the picture to the right size 

Mount onto backing paper and onto white card blank which I have
lightly coloured pink.

Added a bow, gems - bingo done. 

Hope you like it

I would like to enter it for the following 


Thanks for popping in, think its time to put the washing on,
and maybe even get a walk in today.
