Swan-hearts

Greetings to all of the Dies R Us fans!


This week's inspirational card is for a beautiful couple who've finally got engaged
(after 13 years together!)


Dies used include:
Spellbinders Grand Label One
Spellbinders Label One


I created the 'moon background' paper by cutting out a Docrafts Xcut Nesting Circles and attached it to white cardstock with re-positional tape before blending with numerous Distress Inks. Once I'd created a level of colour I was happy with I spritzed it with water and Smooch prior to cutting with Spellbinders Label One and layering on a folded card cut wtih the Spellbinders Grand Label One.

      

I coloured the moon in with some acrylic pearl paint and this beautiful Imagine That 'Love Swans' stamp with Copics. I used some beautiful shimmer paper to cut the Memory Box Heart Flourish to add to the top, and used a couple of the inner heart off-cuts to add some interest to the bottom right corner of the card. I finished it off with some ribbon which I stamped with a simple 'Engaged' sentiment and framed it with some metal tags.


Here is a photo showing the moon background paper I created with all of the shimmer & sparkle of the paint, sprits & shimmer paper.
