I've made this card for an order for a Golden Wedding anniversary. I don't know why but anything to do with weddings I always struggle with, so this has taken me pretty much all day to do ! I'm also putting this card in for the following challenges :
- Friday Sketchers - Sketch
- Stamp Something - Distressed Somethings
- Cute Card Thursday - Happy Anniversary
I started by stamping the main image, which is by Inkadinkado, with black Stazon ink and then water colouring it with Distress Inks. I cut it out with Labels 8 Nestabilities and sponged some Antique Linen and Scattered Straw Distress Inks around the edge. The embossed panel has been made using the Victoria embossing folder. I then took the Scattered Staw ink pad and rubbed it over the card. I made the left hand panel by blending Antique Linen and Scattered Straw over a piece of white card and then blending Tea Dye around the edge. I then used my Stampin' Up background stamp, called En Francais, with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
Well it's been a really miserable day here today, it's rained quite hard on and off all day. I've had a leisurely day today, I have to admit it's the first day I've felt half human in over a week so it's been great to potter in my craft room. I just can't believe how fast the day has gone !
