TAWS post #70 - Picture Perfect

Hi Friends!!  I'm here with a creation using a combination of a few different (and favorite) Alley Way sets.  I've used Tri-Me and Framed for the exterior and Big Chatter for the interior.  I've created this card for friends who are celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary!  I started by creating the background using different shades of blue Hero Arts dye ink.  I then used Delicata gold ink and the triangle outline stamp that comes with the set to add some sparkle and really make the blue tones pop a bit.  I started by stamping the Polaroid frame with Colorbox pigment ink in Harbor onto Canson brand vellum and heat setting this with clear embossing powder.  I then stamped my camera image and did some quick coloring with my Copic markers.  I added a stamped heart, also in the Framed set, in red to the lower right corner.  I slipped a bit during this process but did not want to scrap the entire piece so, using a Micron pen, I loosely drew a heart around the area and made it look more intentional than I meant it to.  I added some red stitching and some die cut tiny hearts to add more texture and shine.
It's been a long time since I've taken the time to create a bit of fun for the interior of a card but this was a very special occasion so I deemed it worthy!  I used my Hero Arts Tide Pool to stamp the Congrats and while it was still a little damp I sprinkled gold embossing powder just on the top of the sentiment.  I then added the words "heart felt" from the same set.  I stamped this using Delicata gold ink.  I added some red stitching to the interior to match what I'd done on the outside.
Thanks so much for coming by today!
