The Challenge 16-Love You

The Challenge is back with a new sketch and color combination!  You can choose to use just the sketch, just the color palette, or combine them both.  I chose to combine the two for my card.

Love You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Winnie & WalterI made my sentiment the focus here, using Winnie and Walter's The Big, the Bold, and the Happy set to stamp on a piece of patterned paper.  While the pattern is kind of busy, the colors are soft enough that the bold, black "love you" stands out nicely against it.  I did use pigment ink for the sentiment to help with that.

The sentiment panel was matted on a black circle, then adhered to a gray panel.  I added a burgundy fishtail flag strip at the bottom of the circle, just beneath the text, then accented it with a silver die cut heart.  A few white sequins scattered around the panel completed the design.
