Your Next Stamp Challenge 78

Its time for another sketch and color challenge for Your Next Stamp! I loved this color combination so thats what I used for my card today! To create the background for the card, I used the Tiny Squares Die to cut LOTS of squares from variations of the colors in the color combo. Next I adhered them down in a somewhat random gradient effect from grey down to green. 


I masked the sentiment to stamp our just "love birds". 

Supplies Used: Your Next Stamp Tweet Love Birds, Tiny Squares Die set, Copic, Spectrum Noir markers
