Because I Love Him...

I thought I would share this as it's appropriate for the day!

I used the
waterfall card technique from SCS for this card for my husband. I have to be very careful because he is a Liverpool supporter so I couldn't use too much black or he would think I went all Man U on him! But white just didn't have the graphic/masculine impact I wanted for this card.
The panels are rubbed over with the Adirondack cranberry which is then spritzed. They are then stamped with heart stamps from my Clear Stamps alphabet set on watercolour paper with Adirondack cranberry and clear embossed. The last panel is stamped with Versamark and clear embossed for a "hidden message". The cardstock and fibres I picked up from Wally's world! The eyelets came with my Silent Setter so I will guess they are Provocraft. LOL Some double-sided tape later and Voila!

When I find out the recipients have received the card I teased I will post it up - I was hoping today but my DES was asked to post the cards and needless to say two days later they were still here!!!! LOL!

Great stuff - I think you were right about the impact of the black though, white just wouldn't quite have cut it, would it?
