Together Forever!

It's our anniversary today - Darren and I have been married for 11 years.  He is the best husband I could ever have wished for and I love him so much!  Here is the card I made for him.


I adore this cute little image which is by InkyDoodles and is called 'Love Birds'.  The background card is watercolour card which I sprayed with water then brushed on watered down Distress Inks.  I can't remember exactly which blues I used but I did add in some Seedless Preserves.  I had previously stamped and embossed the image and used masking fluid to mask off the birds, leaves, berries and perch.  I also used a toothbrush to spray some masking fluid over the background too.  I managed to spray my glasses with it too! Silly me!  When dry, I rubbed off the masking fluid and painted the image with Kuretaki Gansai Tambi watercolour paints.  The frame is Lovin' Diamonds die by Spellbinders and to make the little hearts, I used Flutter Love die set again by Spellbinders.  The sentiment is from Crafter' s Companion Moonbeam Meadow 'Hugs and Kisses' stamp set and I added Glossy Accents to the birds, leaves and berries and Wink of Stella to the hearts.  I added the Wink of Stella after I had taken the photo - sorry!

I was so pleased how this came out, I hope Darren doesn't mind a cute card!

I would like to enter this into the Craft Barn Weekly Challenge which this time is 'Diamonds.

Thank you so much for visiting me and have a lovely Sunday! Take care - Christine xxx
