Hello! Thank you for visiting me, I appreciate it so much and I hope you have been having a lovely weekend. It was our 13th Anniversary on Wednesday and this is the card I made for my wonderful husband. He truly is my soulmate and best friend as well as my husband and I am so lucky to have him!
The most important part of this card is the fabulous Stamplorations sentiment which comes from a clear stamp set called Power of Words, the words come with the moon and five stars which I embossed with Versamark and white detail powder on Watercolour card then inked with various Distress Inks. I think I used Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans and Black Soot. I spritzed with water, dabbed with kitchen roll, then spritzed with glimmer mist. I was really pleased how my watercolour background turned out! I forgot to say that before I inked, I used Pebeo masking fluid to protect the stars as I wanted to colour them in afterwards. I cut a rough mask to cover the sentiment and used a paintbrush to splash some watered down white paint over the background for a bit more interest when dry, removed the masking fluid with a clean finger. The moon and stars are coloured with Promarkers then I coloured some little stars which I had die cut for another project and were left over, with the same Promarker as the main moon and stars. The skyline is cut from black card using a Clearly Besotted die and I glued little pieces of yellow card to the back of the die for the lights in the windows then added this and the stars to the sky. I matted it onto some matching yellow card then onto the blue card base. Finally, I added Glossy Accents to the moon and stars so they all glow. Sorry my photo isn't very good, as I have said before, my photography skills are rubbish!
