Indigo Blu Anniversary Card

 A change from Christmas Cards for once!
 It was our 7th Wedding Anniversary earlier in the week, and when Hubby spotted this stamp at Happy Stampers, I knew it was perfect for an anniversary card.
 I stamped out the image, from Indigo Blu, a few times, using different inks, as I wasn't sure how I was going to add colour.

 I tried the water & Distress Inks, but this particular cardstock didn't want to co operate, so eventually I went with Promarkers.

 After I'd done the colouring, I cut a very rough mask from one of the failed images, and used that to cover the owl whilst I brushed on some DI Tumbled Glass around the main image, fading it out gradually.

Matted onto a light brown cardstock, trimmed to leave a narrow border, then onto a sheet of dark brown card, which was cut longer than the main panel, so I could add the sentiment. This is from the Phill Martin Scribbled Sentiments set.

I matted that onto the pale brown card again, then positioned it below the image panel, then trimmed that down to leave the same narrow border.

 I folded a sheet of A4 gold card for the card base. A couple of acrylic black hearts added to two corners, and it's done.
 It would be simple to just mask off the 'Owl always Love you' part of the stamp, so it does have other uses.
