It is my OutLaws wedding anniversary and I wanted to show them how much we appreciate all they do for us. A gift with some time spent on it.
I used a piece of mount board and gave it a thin coat of white acrylic.i then used 3 colours and a dots mask to bump the background. I decided to not do all the way across. I aimed for an elegant look and just loved the birdcage from PaperArtsy's Hot pick 1004 stamp set.
The ornate book plate is a Tim Holtz and the flowers were cut from colour core card with the PaperArtsy grunge flowers #2 and #3. One of the flowers was covered in music tissue tape. The pin was from Creative expressions and the centre of the flowers had ranger broken china stickles and a pearl sticky. The final flower was made by winding round some cotton lace/ braid and sewing a couple of stitches across the bottom. I think the "life is beautiful" stamp is from Stampin up.
I rushed to the post office to get guaranteed next day delivery - well I got the phone call today and they loved it, reward indeed - my mum out law wanted to know how I did everything, she's a super keen crafter too! How lucky can a girl get a super hubby whose mum crafts.. Chuckle.
I'm entering this into Simon says stamp and show - anything goes.
