This is a card I have made for my Husbands Aunt and Uncle who are celebrating their wedding anniversary today.
The image is from the Popcorn Bear Romance Collection by Crafters Companion
I have stamped the image up using Stazon, and colored in using Lyra Water colours. I have not used these for a while and after colouring in this image I can say that I have missed them, Promarkers are easier to use as they blend quicker but water colours give a nice soft edge to the image.
So the card is covered with a backing paper that I believe I got free in a magazine so I don't know what it is called or who does it, this has been edged with gold peel offs. On top of this I have put a cut out of a flower frame, chalked this to match the card blank colour, I have then used an Organza Red ribbon and ran this up the card and finshied with a bow using the same ribbon.
The image has been matted onto cream card blank and in the four corners I have used red gems to give the look of brads and to add a bit of glam to the image.
The card has been finished with a handmade flower I have created using the Cricut Machine and a sentiment of "Happy Anniversary" the topper has been finished nicely with the hearts and the edge of the rose, having a bit of glitter added to them.
