It's the first Wednesday of the month and it's Designer's Choice Challenge at The House That Stamps Built. Laurie is the challenge hostess and her challenge is "Anniversary".
This card uses RI Stamp #4321-J "Swan Love" and RI#1144-D "Happy Anniversary" , RI#5118-H "Heart Sil (lg) and RI#3405-C "Random Hearts".
To create the focal image of the swans, I stamped them on a white scrap card stock piece, colored them with Copic Markers. I then made a mask for them and stamped the Heart silhouette in Victorian Velvet color Distress Inks so it would appear behind the swan. I then die cut the image and using the same dies created a frame for them.
The background panel was created by swiping a baby wipe across the Victorian Velvet Distress Ink then swiping it from top to bottom along the panel. I did the same using the color Black Soot, avoiding heavy swiping in the center of the panel.
I added the Random Heart stamp to the layer after deciding where it would be on the panel.
I hope you'll join in on Laurie's challenge and join us. The details on how to enter and what you could win can be found at THE HOUSE.
