Golden wedding anniversary

Haven't had much time to play this week but I was asked to make a wedding anniversary card by my good friend and I really enjoyed doing this style again.  Thank goodness for my Graphic 45 papers - they are so appropriate and I love the colours.

Hope they like their card - 50 years eh?  Wow, that deserves a celebration!  Thanks for stopping by.

Hidden Depths

Been dying to try out this Brilliance Ink resist technique from September's Craft Stamper and when I got my new Lynne Perrella stamps, there was no excuse!  It was a bit scary at first as I thought the inks weren't going to spread properly on the glossy cardstock, then I thought the over-stamping was going to smudge but I was actually very pleased at the way it came out.  I didn't have the Ancient Page Ink so I used Stazon for the main image but I think I'll have a go with Versafine next time as the image looks a bit "sticky".  The Lynne Perrella stamps are really detailed and I love them.

Be interested to know if anyone else has tried this technique.

Less is More Challenge - Pink & Brown

Well this week's challenge over at Less is More is to use the colours Pink & Brown - yummy, my favourites!  I decided to use my new Purple Onion patterned diamond stamps, then cut them up and set them on the diamonds of an embossed pink background.  Then just added a couple of embossed flowers to finish.

I like the way it turned out!  Now I'm going to do the rounds and see some of the other lovely creations already submitted.  Thanks for looking at mine.
