{SS} With Love

Hi everyone-
Sorry for the late posting... I thought, that I had already pre-scheduled my card to go live..ooops!!
That just goes to show you what kind of week it's been!!
This week at SweetStamps, this challenge is: HEARTS
So my card today, I am really played with my stamps.  I am using the two biggest birds in the "Tweethearts" stamp set.  I extended the legs on the one bird, so that his rump wouldn't be sitting on the grass.  I created my subtle cloud background using Broken China distress ink.  Then I stamped "Grassy Hill" and colored using Copics (YG97, 17, G14, 43).  Using a post it note, I covered the top part of the bird, and stamped just the legs.  I cleaned off the stamp really good, reinked just the body of the bird.  Then using a ruler and Memento Tuxedo marker, I connected the body to the feet!!
I fussy cut the next bird out and positioned it so it looks like it's giving a kiss, or rather a peck!! 
Really like the way it all came together and I hope that you do too. 

Thanks for stopping by today!!  See you soon.
