Cardmaking and crafts

My main craft love is cardmaking however there will be bits and bobs scattered around that are non-cardmaking, maybe a bit of baking, embroidery, knitting - whatever takes my fancy on the day

Anniversary card for Hubs

It was my Hubs and I's anniversary of meeting earlier this month - 17 years.  I can't believe it!

To celebrate this I made him this card using a free stamp from this month's CraftStamper magazine.  I had been watching Sheena Douglas just before and decided to take inspiration from her use of h20s.  I made the background using my h20s and watercolouring them and used distress inks to shade around the edges and then used te lighter distess ink and a folourish stamp togive some background ineret.  I then triple embossed the heart in purple (unfortunaely I lost some of the definiton when I watercoloured, but I restamped using distress ink to give put the definition back in).  To finish it off I stamped my sentiment onto velum and wrapped it around the card and added some gems.  i then matted it all onto some white card that i had coloured the edges of using a matching promarker.

He loved it  

I thought I'd enter this in the WOW embossing powder January challenge which is based on love and also on simplycreatetoo challenge which has a theme of love is all around.

Thanks for looking x
