It must be love

A good day to everyone.

The other weekend I was in need of a wedding card.  I realised that I didn't have any in my stash so to make up for it I put one together just in case the need arises again.

This beautiful image is from Tiddly Inks called "Forever Yours" and is coloured with copics.

In the background I used a stencil with gesso to create some leaf patterns to add some texture.  Gesso was also applied to the edges of the frame to create more dimension and a shabby chic look.

The sentiment reads "it must be Love"...a stamp from a Grace Tayler stamp set.

The card was finished off with some handmade flowers, leafy flourish die-cuts, and some seam binding ribbon from crafty ribbons.


I very much enjoyed making the card.  I hope you like it and enjoyed your visit today.
Have a great weekend.

Wow it has been a very long time since my last post.

Today I would like to share a card made with a very cute digi called Neko drawn by Kayleigh of Mad Hatters Designs.  She was coloured with copics and her dress and socks were paper pieced.

The sentiment and frame stamps are from the Polka Dot Greetings set by My Favorite Things .  The card was finished off with a heart button and some twine.

For the layout I followed this sketch.


Thank you so much for visiting.
