Holding Hands


I have been asked by a colleague to make a card for friends of his who are celebrating an anniversary. I am not really very good at this type of card because I haven't got any stamps that have this greeting! So, I decided to use one of my favest stamps from PaperBag Studios. This is such a lovley stamp and the sentiment on it is so sweet too.

I firstly stamped the image in black StaZon onto cream cardstock. I then made a mask for the whole stamp and popped this over the original image. I then used Cut & Dry foam to blend Dusty Concord Distress Ink around the edges of the card. Next. I cut the mask down so it was just the hands and the flower and placed this over that part of the image. I used more Cut & Dry to blend Scattered Straw Distress Ink over the remaining part of the image.

To add a little colour to the coat sleeves, I used a waterbrush and painted on pink and then blue inks. I then added a dash of orange to the flower.

Matted onto silver satin card and then onto a piece of the Olde World stack from DCWV I then added this to the card.

The little message is from DoCrafts and was matted onto more of the DCWV paper.

Thanks for looking
