Hello, everyone. On a brief break between DT work, I've managed to complete a couple of commissions for a Diamond Anniversary.
I hope you like them.
This first one was designed using MCS Floriography cd for the background which I recoloured as I had a notion to use the stunning crinkled edged smokey blue ribbon from my crafty stash and my Adirondack Lights - Cloudy Blue - ink pad on my Inkylicious "Special Day" stamp. I said i would stamp again soon...lol! I do so love my Craft Dragon for stamping stability and accuracy of placement...I might be hooked!
I used Spellbinder dies - Grand Scalloped Rectangles and Scalloped Rectangles - for all matts and ink brushed the text diamond with Distress Ink - Stormy Sky.
Using Silver Mirri card I cut out a Spellbinder die - Ribbon Buckles - and a Marianne Creatables flourish for embellishment with crystal sprays from Jem's Designs and Antique Blue roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I added adhesives crystal gems to finish this design.
This second one was also designed using MCS Floriography cd for this wonderfully delicate background which was cut using Spellbinder dies- Grand Labels One - and then inked around the edges using Ditress Ink - Tattered Rose. The toning self coloured background was created in MCS graphics programme to match and this was used for two of the matts which were cut using Spellbinders dies - Grand Labels One and Beaded Squares. This time the sentiment was created in MCS graphics programme by adding text. Using a piece of the patterned background I cut flourishes using Spellbinders dies - Floral Flourishes - for embellishment along with delicate two tone pink roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. Hatpins and crystal gems from my crafty stash complete this design. For both cards I used Cryogen White card from Craft Creations Hi-5 Pearl range.
