Valentine’s makes us think about our special relationships. It’s a popular day / month for first dates, engagements and weddings. As we get closer to Valentine’s Day celebrating love of all types, let’s celebrate anniversaries too.
Create this colorful Happy Anniversary Card with a fun technique.
Start with the featured image, the beautiful hummingbird from the Sweet Petunias Stamp Set. If you’ve ever seen a hummingbird you know as it flies you’ll only get such a quick glimpse that its colors seem to blend. Create this life-like look. Instead of stamping this image in one ink color, give it multiple colors. Apply the True Color Fusion Inks directly to your red rubber stamp before stamping onto your cardstock. Start with the lightest color first and move to your darkest color. This may take a couple of tries to get the desired look.
Use the same technique for your backgrounds as you stamp the large ferns and flowers.
Complete your project with the elegant Happy Anniversary sentiment from the Bird Melody Stamp Set and a couple Sweet Candy Drops.
