I’m featuring the fabulously unique “Geek Love” stamp set today designed by my mega-talented teamie, JJ Bolton.  This is the most adorable set, I just love how you can change the look of the little peeps with different hair styles, clothes etc.  For my card I started with a piece of water-colour cardstock and used distress inks to create my background.  I die cut this using the Burst die and then used the pierced circles to create a frame.  I stamped, coloured (Copics) and fussy cut the boy and girl and speech bubbles and then assembled the card.
