Thinking of you - with love - Couple on bench in silhouette - Day 192 of my 366 day challenge

Thinking of you - with love - Couple on bench in silhouette - 
Day 192 of my 366 day challenge


Hi Craft addicts!

Today's card is a 7" square card using a variety of Companies' products - from Kanban, Hunkydory, Craftwork Cards with a drop (or quite a few) from Tonic Studios, finishing with some Clouding Blending inks from Creative Expressions.

Thinking of you - with love - Couple on bench in silhouette -


I first of all took one of Craftwork Cards "embossed" white "daisy" frames and coloured it using some pink and yellow blending inks from Creative Expressions. I tried to make sure that there was an equal amount of both colours showing when the topper was on it.

I then cut out the square from a Tonic Studios die (it measures 140mm) using some black and white spotty papers (from Craft Creations). Before I added the frame to it, I cut a length of the pink Organza ribbon and attached it to the centre of it. I then stuck the frame on to the panel using Collall All purpose glue

Once it was dry, I then used Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue to attach (at a jaunty angle) to glue it to the front of a 7" white square card (from Hunkydory). I then attached the topper of a couple under an umbrella (from Kanban's Shadows and Sihouettes kit) using thin foam pads straight on to the card. 

For the sentiment, I used one from Craftwork Cards "Year of Sentiments" which reads "Thinking of you - with love" again colouring it to match the frame and stuck it on using foam pads. I then used some Nuvo Crystal drops (Bubblegum blush and Sweet Lilac) to add some drops in each of the other corners.
