Happy Anniversary

Well, today, a couple of my lovely pals celebrate a great milestone in their lives, it's a special Wedding Anniversary for them, Congratulations Kathy and Steve.

Happy Anniversary Kathy and Steve, hope you enjoy your very special day.

To mark this occasion I created a special card for my pals and it's their card which is the project I'm sharing with you all today. 

Please bear with me as I'm transitioning to a new laptop and trying to get my usual photo editing software installed and running.  Still have some teething problems to iron out so that I can get it working and back to the quality of pix I usually post.  I have a feeling the problems are due to now having Windows 10 running and it's possible the old software doesn't work with the new operating system, I may have to upgrade.

For the background of my card, I tried out the - new to me - 'Masterboard technique'.  I've seen a couple of demonstrations recently, one of which was by my lovely crafting pal Lauren during her appearance on HOCHANDA.  I just had to have a go for myself.

I didn't have a plan when I started the master board, but as one of the recipients of the card loves purple and the other is a fan of red, I wanted to incorporate both of these colours.  I have to say I was really pleased with how it turned out in the end, there was a period during it's creation when I was sure it would be consigned to the bin !

Supplies and tools used :

PaperArtsey Fresco paints - Squid Ink, Granny Smith, Cherry Red, Dolly Mix, Snowflake
Crafty Individuals 'Crowned Bunnies' stamp
Lennie Pujol 'Doodle Drops' stamp set
Diana Wakely 'Clearly Collaged Hearts'
Gansai Tambi Starry Colours paints
Stampers Anonymous 'Ledger Script' CMS241
SU! Blackberry Bliss ink

I still have the rest of the master board background left, I'm sure you'll be seeing more of it in other projects soon. 

Thanks for dropping by today to see my latest project, hope you like it. 

Til your next visit.... have a crafty time

I'm so pleased it wasn't consigned to the bin Wynneth, because it would be a shame to deprive us all of such a beauty! I imagine your friends are going to be over the moon with it . . . I know I would be! Such a thoughtful card! Have a great week my friend! Hazel xx
