Love Notes (The Stampers’ Sampler)

Squeezing in this collection of Valentine themed cards.
Now, the reason the cards are so simple in design, they were actually submitted to Take Ten (criteria is for card makes of 10 minutes or less) but they obviously decided to print them in The Stampers’ Sampler, where they appear in the Jan/Feb/March issue.
Redlead Paperworks Musical Heart stamp is the focal for each card.  I remember at the time of making the cards that I wanted to work with only that stamp as the main image, pairing different Redlead loved themed sentiments with the heart.
The watercolour paper provides a lovely texture.
I deliberately worked with only two paint colours, Frescos Blush and Nougat.  In fact minimal supplies:- 2 Frescos, 1 ink pad, 1 focal stamp, various sentiments and fragments of found papers and lace.
For the musical note accents, I simply
inked up the Musical Heart,
stamping onto various found papers to layer to the cards
Redlead’s complete Valentine stamp collection can be found HERE.
Not relating to Valentine’s Day, Redlead have, at the time of scheduling this blog post, a 20% discount on new stamps.
Thank you so much for your time to visit this post.

    Simply classic! These little beauties have such an elegant appearance. I’ve been eyeing that musical heart stamp! LOL. You have inspired me once again! I love that you limited yourself to two colors and one stamp. Thank you for sharing, Lynne. inkybru xx
