OLC Cute, Colors and Love

I don't usually make (m)any Valentine's or loved themed cards but I' going to make a few this year and send the off to Christina Hor for her "Cards for Little Hearts" drive - you can read more about it here. I also made this card with 3 challenges in mind the are all mentioned below.
I made a one layer and used a stamp that came free with a magazine a few years ago. It hadn't seen ink yet, but now that I have a stamping platform it's so much easier to use stamps of any quality - I believed I inked this up 5 times.
The sentiment is put together with 3 stamps from different sets.
The colors are subtle also IRL, but even more so in the photo. I sponged and splattered a blue DI and used an orange and grey one and watercolored the image.

This card is for:
Color Throwdown - #477
The Paper Players - CAS Love Notes
Less Is More - OLC Cute

So happy to hear that now you have a stamping platform, Pia!! Really having one makes the difference, I think it's really a must have, because any stamp works well with it (inking it all the times it's necessary...) ;)
Another sweet and cute CAS, so delicate, and love your water colouring!!

Adorable card Pia! Love the subtle colors...that bear is so sweet! I don't do much stamping, most of mine are digital, but maybe if I had a platform I'd stamp more...especially sentiments!

Adorable image on a really great OLC Pia. Gosh, you will really notice the difference now you have a stamping platform - I wouldn't be without mine! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

This little fellow is adorable, Pia. You made him up into a fab card.
I read you used a stamping platform. Got a misti last year and really liked it for my acrylic stamps.
This year I got the Tim Holtz platform from my husband for Christmas. Have not used it yet, but am hoping it will take the larger sized cards that don't fit into my mini misti!
