There's no place like home

This is a card for Steve for our wedding anniversary today. 22 years - can you believe it?! He is architect trained, so couldn't resist this stamp set when I took Catherine to the NEC Quilts Festival yesterday. I also bought the ribbons, which I couldn't get to lie straight, but no fabric - which stunned everybody at home as I'm a sucker for batiks!. Most of my money went on art materials for Catherine.

I used the August #3 sketch from 2Peas, and diluted the alcohol inks with pearl mixative on a craft mat.


Stamps : Stewart Gill PB1

Inks : Archival Black; Alcohol Inks Cranberry, Butterscotch, Espresso and Pearl Mixative

Extras : MM RubOns; Q&Co Brad; ribbons from 21st Century yarns; Glossy card; Prima Flowers; Circle Punch
