l.o.v.e. Market Street Style!

****If you are here for my Lil' Inker Designs post, please scroll down or click HERE.****

Hi everyone!  I have a sweet little Valentine to share with you today.  It's no secret that I am in LOVE with Market Street Stamps background stamps, right?  Well, here I've used the Hearts a Plenty background. 

I started with layering my strips of rainbow colored cardstock onto a white sheet of cardstock.  I didn't worry if my strips "hung over".  I then trimmed this whole panel down to size.  Next, I broke out my Versamark ink and inked up my stamp......applying TO the stamp.  I then took my rainbow panel and laid it over my stamp and rubbed firmly over the entire thing being careful not to move my paper.  Removing my panel, I instantly have a gorgeous patterned background and the makings of a great CAS card.  Adding in die cut letters to spell LOVE and a fun little arrow die cut rounded out my card.




My card was inspired by the latest Runway Inspired Challenge:  Christopher Kane Resort 2012.  I've been eyeing these challenges and I decided that I just needed to give it a try!  I was inspired of course by the rainbow colors but also I thought that my arrow shape and the hearts resembled the triangle the model is holding.




Well I've had a few days of fun creating this week and now it's back to work for a few!  Have a wonderful day and start to the weekend!!!  It's supposed to be beautiful here in Kansas this weekend!
