ODBDSLC190 - Valentine

The challenge (ODBDSLC190) this week at Our Daily Bread Designs is to make a love themed or valentine's day card using non traditional colours (i.e. no red or pink). I immediately thought of an olive and white card...but ended up adding a splash of orange/yellow too!

Once again I have used some of the sets from the Our Daily Bread Designs February release including Heart of Joy, Be Mine, ODBD Ornate Hearts Dies and ODBD Beautiful Borders Dies. The Tiger Lily is an older stamp and still so gorgeous!

The smaller hearts from the Heart of Joy set on the white paper are stamped with Perfect Medium and coloured with Perfect Pearls "Green Patina" giving them the shine you can see on the top one in the above photo. (Also two smaller ones on the inside (only one visible in the photo) stamped in "olive grove".) The tiger lily is stamped in Memento "Olive Grove" then coloured with Copic markers and a couple of Prismacolor pencils.
