Clarity challenge 36 - Love

I started thinking along the theme of Valentine's Day as it was so close.
I used Raspberry Adirondack ink throughout.
First I stamped the word 'love' with the letterbox kit and then masked it off as I wanted this to stand out.
The next stage was to place the heart stencil, without the inner piece on the card and very lightly brush through with the ink.
I then placed the abstract squares stencil underneath the heart stencil and brushed through again. 
Next I put the inner part of the heart stencil in place and brushed though again, this time quite heavily to give a contrast.
I stamped 2 of the wee folk and the kissing couple into three of the squares.
My background is black card and letterbox kit letters saying 'love'.  I stamped the word randomly over the black card and then brushed over with Lava Red mica powder. 
To finish the card off I cut out the heart, mounted it onto the black background and then mounted that onto some bright pink cardstock.
