Love Birds


With just over a week to go until Valentine's Day, love is in the air, even for the Snarky Sisters! We start a new challenge today... K is for Kiss. Of course, it's us, so you can choose to go all lovey-dovey, or perhaps you'd rather tell someone to kiss off!  
Much to my sisters' chagrin, I went the romantic route:


I started by giving this cute little pair of kissing love birds a bit of ground to stand on. Distress marker watercolouring gave them some colour. I then justified keeping all of my cast-off watercolour panels by finding one I could die cut a heart from to inset into the main panel. Even better, I then found a perfectly coordinating piece of patterned paper for the card base! What I'm ever going to do with such a mushy card is another matter entirely. ;) 
By some strange coincidence, there seem to be other heart/love-related challenges going on at the moment, so I am entering this in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Have a Heart challenge and The Card Concept Sweet Hearts challenge (clean and layered). 
Be sure to stop by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers to see what my sisters in snark have been up to for this challenge, as well as our latest Queen of Snark, Dotty Jo! Then I hope you will come and join in the fun. 




Supplies: white & Stampin' Up basic black cardstock, Strathmore mixed media paper, unknown patterned paper, STAMPlorations Smallbirds & Holiday Artsy stamps, Versafine onyx black, Memento new sprout & spun sugar, worn lipstick & tumbled glass distress inks, Wow clear matte dull embossing powder, distress markers, QuicKutz heart die

You really did take the nice route; that is so unlike you, especially when you have a chance to be "snarky." LOL But, I do like the card. And I can think of a few people you could send it to...
