Some of our best friends are celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary this weekend with a little get together… So of course I made them a special card.
Do you remember the inky backgrounds I made… Well this was one of the projects I had in mind when making them.
I also had in mind the challenge of words over at the Paperartsy blog and had been inspired by the post by Alison Hall.
So I grabbed the one second from right using the Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood and Crushed Concord and made this card…
I used a set of stamps I have had for a while to add the words in the background using coordinating inks… And the little hearts too, dotting them around like confetti. Then I stamped all the words for the sentiments and the wordy hearts Darcy designed for Paperartsy onto white cardstock. I then added ink to the hearts and edged the words I had cut out to given them some definition. I mounts this panel onto a white panel and then edged that. Then cut another panel for underneath. On this I took the same wordy heart and stamped and masked using Ll the distress ink colours used in the first panel. Then used the blenders to add some shading. I then put the top panel on some foam pads to raise it, and added some shading for the hearts, and some sticklers dots to finish off before adhering it to the card blank.
Pleased with this design. And now time to raise a glass to the happy couple! Congratulations Mr & Mrs B!
