IO stamps Valentine Release Blog Hop Day 2

Good Morning!!

Welcome to Day 2 of the IO Valentine Release Blog Hop

For my first card, I wanted to share the LOVE CATS  image with you.

I created the background using Distress Oxide Inks and a Stencil

Then,  cut  large circle and sponged it with yellow to create a moon. 

I cut the Large Fence Die in BLack and mounted the cats in the circle onto the fence

Lastly, I added the LOVE die sentiment., cut out in glitter to add some pizzazle.

This card features the Wide Stripe Heart stamped the Heart with Black and then coloured in the white area with Teal Marker. I added some gilding foil to the small heart. Lastly, I added the Hello sentiment from the Greetings Die Set. 

Hope you likey!!!!
