Happy Valentine's Day...

Good morning!

Here I go, inking up a few more Stacey Yacula stamps from my Purple Onion Designs stash. I feel like I'm doing a pretty good job so far in keeping with my goal of creating more cards using stamps that have been sitting unloved in my collection for too long. This time I brought together the tiny little snail from the Garden Bugs set with the large Toadstool and Mushroom Trio stamps to create a sweet Valentine. I used a mirror image stamp to flip one of the snails so it looks like they are coming up either side of the toadstool to meet at the top. I added glossy accents trailing along behind them for a fun touch as well as a couple of glossy hearts floating over their heads. More mushrooms were added in the distance to help set the scene and I even used the mirror stamp with one of them to flip it for a different look. I'm so glad I finally got these all inked up because this is another one of those cards that simply makes me smile.  :)

Later gators!
