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.
