Love is sweet

Hello crafty Friends,

It's Wednesday and time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More blog.

This week the theme is to create anything that inspires you from the below photo

Here is my inspiration, i have created a card with Strawberry stamp of Gracielle designs. The background was created by adhering washi tape to the card panel and then adhered the diecut panel over it. The center panel was coloured using Ranger distress inks. The sentiment was from mudra stamp. The digi was watercoloured with Zig watercolour markers. Fuzzy cut the image and adhered to the diecut center panel. Finished my card adding a bow and heart chipboard.

Hope you like it

Supplies used:
