Three's a crowd?

Is it just me or has Wednesday come particularly fast this week?  This Wednesday, however, is a good one, because there is a new One Layer Wednesday challenge over on Susan's blog.  I really love this style of stamping, but it doesn't come easy to me.

This week's challenge is to use pink and red, and only pink and red, on a white background.  This is what I came up with:


Definitely not as beautiful as Susan's example, but I had fun making it and learnt abit more (by trial and error) about what makes things 'work' or not.

The card is 4 1/4" square. I started by stamping the tree, added the two lower birds, a stamped heart and the sentiment - it looked okay, but something wasn't quite right.  The balance was off.  Adding a third bird corrected this - maybe not a valentine after all?  As I went to move the card out of harms way, my eye was caught be a tiny felt heart left over from another project, I couldn't help myself, I just HAD to add it over the stamped heart.

Thanks for visiting, and if you have time this week why not challenge yourself to have a go too?

All the supplies for this card are from Amuse Studio

stamps: tweetheart
paper: sugar
ink: cranberry*, shell, currant
misc: cherry felt, tiny heart die (part of heart trio)


* This colour is being discontinued, if you have to have it, or need a refill, now's the time to act - when it's gone it's gone
