Ruby Wedding Anniversary Card

It's a yucky day here today, so I've tidied up my craft room and started another card. Now I thought I'd have a break, sit down with a coffee and write a blog post.

This card uses just two ink pads - Archival black and Adirondack Cranberry.

I cut the heart shaped moon myself out of a Post-it with a pair of scissors (I folded it in a half to get a nice, symmetrical shape). I then placed it on the card and inked over it with a brush to colour the sky and create the moon. Once I was happy with the sky I removed the mask and added a little bit of colour to the moon, so that It wasn't bright white.

The heart embellishments on the sides are part of a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two tag.

If you haven't yet got the Birdhouse set (which is one of my faves) or the Letter Box set or the Numbers set it's the perfect time to buy them. Claritystamp have a fantastic offer on at the moment (until midnight on the 31st March, 2014) of 40% off the Classroom kits.

This card has got me thinking, as it will be my Silver Wedding Anniversary later this year. Anyway, I've just worked out that it will be 2029 when it's time for my Ruby one. 2029 - that sounds so futuristic. I wonder if I'll still be writing this blog? I may be writing a post on Hubby's card........
