Best Of Love...Olive You!

I think my favorite stamp from the Best Of Love set is the olive you one!  It's weird, because I HATE olives, but this stamp just makes me laugh! 

When using the olive you stamp, one MUST use Old Olive!  So, that's where I started with this card!  I stamped the olive image on some watercolor paper and watercolored it with aqua painters and ink (just squish the lid of the ink pad into the ink pad and then pick up the ink from the lid with an aqua painter).  The little red part of the olive was colored with a Stampin' Write Marker and so was the heart.  And, when it was all dry, I added some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details on the heart to give it a little bling! 

LA Stamper TIP:  When watercoloring, stamp your images with StazOn ink so it doesn't bleed when coloring.

It was a VERY exciting moment for me when I found out the olive you fit in the wavy pennant framelit!  However, you must cut the pennant and then stamp...I know, backwards from what I always tell everyone to do, but it doesn't fit if you stamp and then cut out.

I finished the card off by adding a layer of stamped Old Olive cardstock and some Cherry Cobbler baker's Twine.
