Two or More Images With Paper Sundaes

Good morning!  This week at Paper Sundaes, we are challenging you to use at least 2 image stamps, not including sentiments!  (That would be WAY to easy :)

I've combined the beautiful Tilda with Letter with the Elegant Heart Ribbon from the Magnolia 'Raising The Ceiling' release, and Magnolia's Post 14 Feb stamp.  I've actually extended the length of the stamped ribbon a bit by cutting it where it's behind her legs and edging it over as far as I could without showing a gap.  That gained me just enough room that she can sit comfortably on the ribbon.  I've also cropped out the ink strings holding the hearts and replaced it with some twine.

The kraft background paper I created myself with Photoshop Elements.  I couldn't figure out what I wanted to put there, and I think it turned out pretty well :)  I then printed it out on the Kraft cardstock, and away I went!

To get a bit of a vintage look to the envelope, I used my colourless blender and used palette blending off the dirty caps of my E41 and E42 Copics.  Now they're nice and clean inside!

Bunny Zoe's:  Love is in the Air

Let's Ink It Up:  Valentine's Day
Stamptacular Sunday:  Hearts gone wild (Heart post stamp, hearts dangling from ribbon, heart on envelope, heart doily :)

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, thanks for stopping by!
