I love the vibrant orange and green of lovebirds and used those for the colour scheme for this card.
The bright orange background is a Gelli print that I made using two stencils. One is the Clarity Leafy Swirl and the other is a heart one that I cut myself.
I used Doeflex and my Silhouette Cameo to create it.
I applied paint to the Gelli Plate and placed the Leafy Swirl stencil on top. This was followed by my stencil and some copy paper to take off the excess paint. I then put a heart shaped mask in place before I took the print to leave me a clear aperture to stamp into.
I coloured in the lovebirds with ProMakers and created a little bit of scenery to set them off.
The green mat is white card coloured in with the same green ProMarkers that I used on the birds. It 's an easy way of making sure the colour matches.
I don't normally do anything to the insides of my samples but this had to be done! Everybody say "Aww!".
I guess I'd better brave the elements (it's absolutely chucking it down!) and take Maya out for a walk before I crack on with the rest of my jobs.
I hope you have a lovely day.
