"Love Birds"

Ribbons and Bows
is the new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenge
for the month of May.

These may not be actual love birds on this Flonz stamp (found here), but they are snuggling up
so I am imagining that that is what they are.
And with Spring coming out up North 
it seemed like a nice romantic, cuddly
Spring thing to stamp.

I bought myself a brayer last year...which I have only used once (shame, and shaking my head)
~ so on a whim I thought it might be nice to play with it.
I love the textured look that some of the rolling produced
and was really surprised by how easy it was.
Why haven't I got into this before???

Keeping with the theme of romance, that was stuck in my head, 
I thought pinks were a pretty colour to use.
For the ribbon part of the challenge I have made a junk bow and placed a flower on it.
If you use your imagination, the junk bow is almost
like a nest!

I hope you take the time to pop over to 
and check out the amazing talent and ideas from the team.
 Flonzcraft is offering a generous $20 gift voucher to the winner,
he offers an occasional spot prize
and there is always a top 3!
