First, I took one stamp from Pieces of Architecture and stamped it with a teal distress ink. I then took a stamp from Pieces of Calligraphy and stamped it in gray ink. Then I sprayed water on it so it would spread the ink and blur the stamping. I then took some gray distress spray ink and sprayed it in the middle. Dried it with a heat gun. After it was dry, I then took a number stencil with some black ink and stenciled the two corners, and I edged the piece in black ink.

I stamped Many Sheep on a panel of white card and trimmed it to fit my slimline base, making sure lover baa was in the picture. I edged the panel with black ink and stamped Lost Coast Designs ATC Doodle Heart with red ink. I stamped Sheep Doll with black ink on white card, added a little pink and silver, fussy cut and added her to the card. A touch of grey promarker to ground her and we are ready for the month of love.
