Silver Wedding Couple

I made this for my mum and step dad who celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last week. Congratuations to you both !!!

My mum has never had a 25th anniversary because we sadly lost my dad when he was only 41 - they were married for 21 years.

The gorgeous drawing is a digi image from Mo Manning (Mo's Digital Pencil), which I printed out a few times, coloured with pro and flex markers, then cut out and layered up.  The matted and layered mounts were made from silver mirra card and white cardstock which I stamped and embossed with silver swirly leaves.  The edges of the white embossed card were cut using my new babies - my Grand Calibur and Spellbinders Edgeabilities dies (all bought by my lovely hubbie as a treat - kiss kiss Tony!!)  Each layer was lifted up using foam pads and finally I added a flower and a silver swirl.

Here are the rest of the details:
Promarkers:  Warm Grey 4, Cool Grey 2 & 4, Blossom, Rose Pink
Flexmarkers: Blue Grey, Light Fawn, Pale Blossom
Spectrum Pens: Blue Grey 1, Warm Grey 0.5, 1 & 3
