Happy Anniversary Mum & Dad

Hello All! Just wanted to share the card that I made for my parents for their ruby wedding anniversary. It is Paris themed, as they are going to there to celebrate!

The stamp is a Papertrey Ink Stamp, which has been coloured with Copic Markers (Petals : R59, R39, R29, R27 & R24. Flower centre : YR24, YR23, YR21 & YR20). I then rubbed the whole image with old paper distress ink to mute the colours and help blending with the paper. I used the R59 marker to colour my clear rhinestones, so it looked like there were a few rubies on there!

Punches are Martha Stewart,with nesties and glimmer mists to sparkle up the die cuts! The small lock and key embellishments are Prima vintage treasures. I just love these!
I was pleased with the way the vintage seam binding has turned out, as I died it with Copic ink (YR21), colourless blender and then sprayed it with Tattered Angels Creme Rouge glimmer mist. It dried so quickly I was able to use it almost immediately, which was a good thing! You can see the different colours in the picture above!

Thanks for coming to visit! Kxx
