Well, now that Frank has been given the anniversary card I made for him, I can now post it on the blog (his Valentine's Day card will be posted tomorrow!!)
It's been a while since I colored up a Magnolia stamp, but I knew I wanted to include this little girl with her apron of hearts for his card. I also wanted to use the tree because I could personalize the 'heart' carved out in the middle of the tree with our initials.
So, after stamping and masking Tilda and the tree.......the card needed a bit more...so I grabbed my Magnolia fence stamp and added that to the card. Then.........I lost my desire to make a 'scene'. I actually put the card away for two days because I just didn't have the umpff to do all this coloring!!!
But, after giving myself a break....I picked it back up and here's the finished card!!
So, after all the wishy washiness of making the card.....I absolutely LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I used my prisma pencils to color in the images and distress inks for the background. I added glossy accents to the hearts in her apron and I finished it with a Papertrey Ink sentiment!
I also cut out and popped up the 'heart' on the tree - that's why there's a shadow cast in the picture!
Hope you're having a great day!!!!!!
Thanks for your visit!
