Whoooo Loves You? for Great Impressions Stamps (!)

I am so excited for today's post!  I have wanted for a long, long time to be on the Great Impressions Stamps Design Team,  and the day has finally arrived!  I absolutely love these red rubber stamps!  This is going to be a fun, fun journey! We're starting the year with a sale.  It's the perfect time to either start or expand your collection of Great Impressions Stamps

The first Sunday of the month starts a new challenge on the Great Impressions Stamps Blog.  This month's theme is "Lovey Dovey". 

You can use this picture any way you'd like -- follow the challenge and join us.  Of course, we'd love to have you use a Great Impressions Stamp, but it's not a requirement.  If you do, please put it in the customer gallery.
Here's my Lovey Dovey inspiration:

I used Great Impressions Stamp Owl & Bird (E781) on this card.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I stamped Owl & Bird on watercolor cold press paper, using Momento ink.  Then, with ink pads and a water brush, I added the color to the stamped image. 

The card shape was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo.  Papers and glimmer trim are from Close To My Heart. 

I hope you join us this month for our Lovey Dovey Challenge at Great Impressions Stamps!  I would LOVE to see what you create for the challenge. 

I will be posting each Saturday on the Great Impressions blog, but you'll want to visit daily to see all the great inspiration from this incredibly talented team!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
D.L. Art -- January Linky Party
All Sorts Challenge -- What's New? (Design team, stamp, cut file)
