Elegant Dove

Good morning! It's Friday and that means a new color challenge at StampTV. I pulled out Hope Grows for this card.


This week the colors are Black Onyx, Red Hot and White. We would love to have you play along. One random participant will win a stamp set from Gina K Designs.

I stamped the dove, from Hope Grows, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copic markers, starting with C5.

Added C3.

Then filled in with C1 and used my blender pen to push some highlights back in. After coloring, I cut out the image.

I folded a Pure Luxury White card base and stamped the branch using Vivid Brick red ink.

Cut a circle using Nestabilities and sponged Vivid Cobblestone ink.

I layered the circle with a  Pure Luxury Black Onyx layer, cut using Scallop Circle Nestabilities. The dove was adhered using Pop Dots. I added red gems at the upper left and the sentiment at the lower right.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
