This is another card from the German show. I think the old couple look so cute together on the bench and they could well be celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary, hence the card.
I wanted the tree stencil to be embossed in gold over the top of the scene but my first attempt wasn't very successful.
I taped off the border of the stencil so that I could then ink up the central part with Versamark ink. I then removed the tape and placed the stencil onto card (which I had rubbed with an anti-static bag) and ran it though my Ebosser to transfer the ink.
However, when I applied the powder I ended up with a right mess thanks to the sticky residue the tape had left behind. I was never going to get rid off all those specks so I had to do it another way.
I also realised that I needed to do the scene first.
Some punched hearts hanging from the tree finish it off.
