My love is like a red, red rose

For Isa's L challenge I have chosen not to use the extra options. Firstly I didn't have any bird stamps, and secondly the theme I chose did not really suit the waterfall card technique. But there is a lot of Love floating around, as well as Leaves - and I did go all Lyrical!

For the upper and lower backgrounds I scribbled with the pens on a craft mat, sprayed with water and smooshed my card around. On the lower one I batiked the honeycomb pattern. For the middle background I sponged inks on gesso, and then stamped. I am stupidly wearing a white cardigan, that now has a nice pink sleeve!

I am always amazed at how colours react to one another. The brads are bright yellow, but look a soft green on this card.

I will also submit this for the DCM challenge using the colour theme of golden.

Inks : Adirondack Sunshine Yellow and Lettuce; Impress Garnet; Marvy pens Brilliant Yellow, Pastel Peach and Coral Pink; Versamark
