It's my husbands birthday next month, and now that he has retired I find it difficult to make his card as he can wander into my craft room at any time time. So yesterday while he was fishing I set to and made his card, it was great to have no interruptions. I've used several different stamp sets to make this card, including Stampscapes, Inkylicious and Woodware. I started by making a backing paper using distress inks to add colour to the paper and then again for the over stamping. Next I created my scene stamping in black memento ink first and than adding the colour with my brushes again using Distress Inks. The sentiment was from an Inkylicious set, this along with the scene were popped onto some silver mirri card (somehow it looks more gold in the photo). Finally I cut out To My Perfect Husband which was from a tonic die, this I cut out in black and in silver mirri card and offset one over the other to create a shadow.
I'm going to enter this into the Stamping Sensations Challenge, which this month is One For The Guys.
Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.
