I must say that while we have had our challenging moments, we love each other more now than ever. He is my true soul mate! While the couple in this card may be a tad older than we, the emotion the image conveys mirrors the comfort and friendship we share...
Now... how well this card matches the card in my mind is another story!
I was hoping to create a night skyline and I must have tried a zillion times first using the airbrush system and masking but it did not look like I wanted it to look. Either the colors were off or I could not get close enough to the image. It was way difficult to cut a mask for this image that allowed the airbrush to get into the tiny spots. So after "googling" some tutorials, I ended up using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Chipped Sapphire (really a deep blue and not as purple as you may think) and Faded Jeans with the distress tool. I added some glitter and stickles for stars. In some spots the glitter glue/stickles faded the distress ink and I thought I told myself those were "clouds" in the night sky- an artistic touch! The moon was cut out using a 1" round punch and then you reinsert the circle and punch another "bite" out of it to the size of the moon. Deco Art Glamour Dust was sprinkled on the moon.
Tom and Tilly are colored with copic markers on cryrogen white iridescent paper. Some of the iridescent glitter shows through the markers in the pic. DP is an oldie but goodie- K & Co Blue Awning and cardstock is from my stash. I also used Recollections coordinating lace, ribbon and crystals borders (all in one package and on sale at Michaels) and Wild Orchid Crafts metal corners. Bronze gems also from my stash.
Thanks for visiting. Happy Valentines Day to lovers all over- old and young alike!
