Hello. Well what a miserable day. The dark cloud of Oxfordshire is looming large and ugly over us today! Yuck!
Today I would like to share a card I made for my brother and his wife (the J & J of the title) to celebrate their anniversary this month. They have just returned from a rather soggy holiday in Cornwall (my other brother and his wife are in tropical Thailand so there’s no envy there then!).
The image I chose for them is ‘Times to Treasure’ from LOTV. Instead of using my usual Promarkers I decided to colour with pencils. I am still trying to get the hang of these and need to learn some blending techniques but I think it came out ok. I stuck a couple of heart peeloffs on the cover of the book they are studying as it’s all about the love!
|Awwwww! True love!|
My paper is from Dovecraft and I used a script background stamp to make a ‘page’ to sit behind the image. My dies are Spellbinders Labels 1 and Tattered Lace corners and the sentiment is an All Occasions die.
The flowers and twine are from my stash and the heart charm was a magazine freebie. Gotta love freebies!
My colour choice is all down to the colours that they had at their wedding. Yes the bridesmaid’s wore green, looked fab I have to say, and the flowers actually reflect those in her headdress.
You see, I don’t just throw these things together (even though it may look like it)! J
Smiling always (this card was not a last minute job for a change)!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
