Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit. Today is kind of a special day around my house. This day marks 36 years of wedded
chaos bliss for me and the hubby! I'm not sure how 36 years went by in the blink of an eye...but, they did. I wouldn't trade a single day of those years, not even the not-so-great days (cause let's face it...in 36 years there are bound to be a few not-so-great days). With each anniversary I grow to love this guy more and more and I look forward to many more years together.
Okay, now that you listened to me get all sappy, let's get on with the anniversary card, shall we? I'm not great with "guy cards". They always seem to stump me even when they are for someone in my own family. So, I remembered seeing some cards that were stamped and colored on Kraft paper and they seemed a bit more on the masculine side to me. And...that's what I went with....
I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out and plan on trying this technique again in the near future. I had to remind myself to wait a little longer between adding colors to the image. I found that it took the Copic Ink a little longer to settle into the true color it would become on this Kraft paper. Definitely harder to blend and harder to judge your final color.
The images are from the stamp set "Sweet Succulents" by My Favorite Things.
I love the inside sentiment, cause really, that's most days.
And, there you go!
Thanks so much for stopping by on our special day - see ya soon!
