Champagne Anniversary

I have several anniversary cards to send in the next few weeks and I had a left over digi stamp which I printed off quite a while ago, one of a set I bought from Beccy's Place and the set is called Girls' Night.  I decided to colour it with my Polycolour Pencils by Koh-i-Noor, bought recently whilst away on holiday and which I really love.  They leave a lovely sheen and the colours are quite pretty too.  There are only twelve but perhaps I will add some colours in the future.

I started by colouring the image and then fussy cut it out.  I then added some Sea Green Brusho to a piece of white card to fit a 6" square card with about an inch around the edge and spritzed it fairly lightly and when dry I used a Leonie Pujol heart embossing folder just to add a bit more interest to the background.  I had to emboss it twice to cover the piece of square card.  I finished the card with a sentiment stamped on to a label shape using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink, to which I added a bow attached to the glass hand drawn using a Black 01 Micron Pen.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.

I am entering the following challenges:-

Your card is absolutely beautiful Pat, you've done a wonderful job putting it together. Your colouring is awesome, particularly on the little flowers. You've also done an amazing job fussy cutting around the image... you certainly have a steady hand. I love the contrast you created with the background - both the embossed pattern and the fabulous colours. Beautiful!

Beautiful card Pat. I LOVE the heart embossed background. It adds so much lovely texture to your card and the light spritzing of green brushos is just the perfect way to add a bit of colour. Lovely colouring of our pretty image. Great work Pat. xx
