I decided I had better get my act together this afternoon as it's my daughters wedding anniversary tomorrow and her birthday on Monday and I hadn't even got started on a card.
The first one is for her birthday. I decided I wouldn't use any DP but would stamp my own. The backing panel was made using distresss inks worn lipstick and milled lavender dabbed onto a craft sheet spritzed with water and the white card placed onto it. I then used a Crafty Individuals swirl stamp from the C1-235 set and stamped using the milled lavender. The main image panel was stamped using the swirls and a gorgeous art deco lady that I got from Gail at Circa Design, it only cost me 50p 'cause there is a little fault on it but I soon sorted that. I coloured the image very delicately using watercolours. The ribbon and gorgeous brad are from stash.
This one is the Anniversary card. I used K & co papers, nestie shapeability fleur de lis pendant, MS doily punch and stamped the flower using the free stamp from October 2008 Craft Stamper mag.
I decided not to put sentiments on either as I thought it would spoil the look.
Well that's it for the moment. Hope you have a good weekend.
Hugs, Pat xx
