It was the 15th Anniversary, of my partner's and my first date a few days ago, and this is the card I made him, using a set of awesome, brand new Visible Image stamps that are available for pre-order on Saturday 30th Jan, pop over to the webshop and see what else is available HERE.
The stamps I used are Soulmates, Bronte Script, Crackled Background and the feathers and birds from the new 'Learn to Fly Again' set.
I took a piece of Centura Pearl card, and using the mat side, I added a length of masking tape 2/3rds down, and worked on the top first.
I stamped the script using Versamark, and heat embossed with Clear powder. I then blended 'Abandoned Coral' Distress ink over the embossing.
With a Quickie glue pen and some gilding flake, I added some gold highlights.
Now to the bottom 1/3rd of the card, I stamped the Crackled stamp with 'Abandoned Coral', then blended around the edges with 'Peacock Feathers'. I stamped the sentiment with Black Versafine ink, and added two birds in 'Peacock Feathers'.
I die cut two hearts, and whilst they were still in the die, I blended 'Peacock Feathers around the edges, and stamped the script with the same ink. Using 'Abandoned Coral' with the Feather and Birds out of the new set, I stamped onto the hearts, and again added a bit of gilding flake with the glue pen.
To finish off, I added a string bow.
