tin/aluminuim anniversary

While the traditional gifts for a 10th anniversary are not all that 'pretty' at least when you are trying to make a card using those items.... the modern gift for a 10th anniversary is diamonds. I have always thought that the Bride DSP looks shimmery like a diamond, so I choose to use this as my background paper. I also love the jewel look of the pearls and crystals in the pretties kit, and diamonds are jewels, so score again! My brother and sister in law just celebrated their 10th anniversary, so I wanted to make a very special card for them, since they are such special people. I also wanted to wait until after I had given it to them to post in on here.

Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black
Paper: Bride DSP
Misc: Pretties Kit, Aqua Pen, Organza Ribbon, Reinkers

To color the flowers from the pretties kit, I used an aqua pen and Rich Razzleberry reinker. I picked up color from the reinker with my aqua pen and then colored onto the flower. The more you squeeze the pen the lighter the color will be, the drier the pen, the darker the color will be. You can also shade using this method, you just need to wait a little bit in between coloring to let the fabric dry a bit.

I am off to my running club. I did survive the 5K on Sunday and have rested up so I am ready for some more punishment.

Until next time, Happy Scrappin'
