One of the many fun things about this challenge is that you get to give your old, retired, maybe even forgotten and neglected stamps a chance to shine once again. This particular image is from Flourishes, a company that closed it's doors maybe 3 years ago, the stamp set is called, "A Token of my Affection" and I just love all the images in it, this little love struck robot is just so darn sweet.
I stamped this image onto Canson water color paper, that I die cut with Spellbinders Floral Ovals and colored it with the aqua painter and SU markers in Basic Gray, and a little bit of Regal Rose, I applied a little silver gel pen to the screws and ''hands'', then, I punched some hearts using red foil card stock with the SU retired Pinking Heart Corner Punch, I love the teeny, tiny perfect hearts that you get from this punch. The heart flowers were punched with the heart in the Owl Builder punch from SU and the heart in the token with the SU small heart punch.
The strip of DSP is from Lili of the Valley "Butterfly Kisses" 8x8 paper collection, now sadly retired. I used the SU retired Scalloped Dotted Ribbon Punch on black card stock for the strip separating the two panels.
Here is a close up of the little punched hearts.
And of the white embossed sentiment.
This is a picture of the finished inside, I'm keeping my resolution of finishing the inside of all my cards before I post them, I know it will save me a ton of time when it's time to send them on their way to family and friends.
And here is the sketch that inspired this card.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
