27th Anniversary

Today my hubby Andrew and I have been married for 27 years. It doesn't seem like it though as the time has simply flown by since we had our 2 daughters. Claire is now 20 and Sarah is 18 and sometimes it seems like it's only yesterday that they were little.
I made this card for Andrew to celebrate. It's not too fussy as he's not keen on anything too frilly.

The heart was cut out from some paper I decorated. I scribbled on watercolour paper in several colours of leafing pen (copper, gold and red shimmer). I then painted the paper with watercolour paints in deep red and pink. When it was dry, I rubbed a baby wipe over the top to remove the paint from the gilded areas. I then stamped on a design made from 9 squares chosen from a set of Magenta cling stamps in black Memories dye ink. Please note that you cannot use solvent ink such as StazOn for this as it takes off the gold leafing.

I then stamped the same 9 square design on white card in the black ink. I used a 12cm square and trimmed the edges with deckle scissors. I stamped a border of squares round the edges of a deep red 15cm square card.

To finish, I edged the heart with the gold leafing pen and added a greeting and a brass stamping in antique copper which I glued in place with Diamond Glaze.
