Stepping Out On Your Anniversary

Happy Thursday everyone, almost the weekend!
I hope you've had a good week & are ready to kick up your heels!
I have a Just Inklined card to share today!
I have to apologise for the photo quality, I had to take them at work
 during my lunch break & the weather was just awful.

This is a little 5"x5" square card.
The base is a sheet of patterened cs which came from Lidl!
Isn't it fantastic! As soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do!

A little Monochromatic card!
The perfect image to sepia tone is this one, which is called
It's a very versatile image which could be used for so many different 
occasions, but this time, I used it for my sister & BIL's anniversary card!
I coloured the image with a mix of Flexmarkers & Promarkers,
cut out with a nestie & inked whilst still in the die with
Antique Linen & Pumice Stone distress inks. 

The sentimnent was done in a similar fashion, then I threaded
some seam binding & lace through the slots!
The ony other embellishment is a little old fashioned
safety pin which I threaded some lace & seam binding through!

I'm making a conscious effort to make more cards which can be
sent in the mail with just a regular stamp here in the UK.
This one definitely fits the bill as I had Jim the porter/mail man at work
check it for me in his handy little measuring guide!
Thanks Jim!

  1. WOW! What a super stuning card! Your coloration is wonderfull! It really looks like an old painting. One time I have used Promarkers tougether with that markers from Crafters Companion and they made a chemical reaction. It made blisters and foarm and in the end the image was ruined. Since that day I never have try to use different brands of marker tougether. But it looks like should give it a go again.:o) xx Bianca
