Blue Smirk Bath Couple Anniversary

This is the anniversary card I made for some good friends, using the cute little Smirk stamp.

The Smirk Bath Couple image was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black and watercoloured using Whispers Brushstroke markers. This was then cut out using the standard circle Nestabilities die and matted onto a blue scalloped circle also cut out using a Nestabilities die and embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
A panel of the blue spotty paper from the Hot Off The Press Ultimate Creative Pack was matted onto blue card and a strip of blue organza ribbon was attached across the top of the panel.
Two lengths of the blue ribbon were also attached to the reverse of the circle panels and attached at the top of the card.
The sentiment, from the See D's Blooming Friendships stamp set, was stamped using the Onyx Black ink and matted onto the blue card, also embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.
The mini concentric circles stamp, also from the Blooming Friendships stamp set, was stamped in the top corners of the card and on the sentiment panel using the Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress ink. Faux gems were then adhered at the centre of the circles at the top of the card and along the ribbon. As a finishing touch, Anita's 3D Gloss was added over the bath image to give it a realistic enamelled finish.

Very sweet card! I usually am no fan of smirk, but this is really nice and would make me think twice... Maybe I do need them after all?


Fabulous card Kathleen
