So a nice simple sketch this week. I have stuck very much to the sketch. I used a beautiful long stemmed rose stencil from Dreamweaver (LL375). In fact it was one of the first Dreamweaver stencils I bought way back in 2002.
I stencil embossed the rose onto some canvas paper to give some texture. Then I added colour with sponges and ink pads.
I don't think you can see the canvas texture on the photo very well, but it does make it stand out a bit more than being on a flat, smooth card.
I added some simple layering and sentiments to finish. My husband does not like fussy cards, so I think I will keep this for our next anniversary. He will probably wonder what on earth is going on ... as we don't normally give each other anniversary cards!
