Anniversary

Yet another card for 2 challenges. The sketch is 2 sketches for you, Bonus sketch and on PTW we have a choice of 2 challenges Firsts - first birthday, Christmas, anniversary etc OR No Stamping! - embellishments, papers, die cuts, paper folding, stitching, encaustic, doodling? etc etc.
I chose to go with the First anniversary card. Now on this card I played about with a few techniques. First I scored my cardstock with 3 lines to mimic the sketch. I then puched out a circle and cut out a scalloped edged strip from brown cs and using my brilliance Lightning Black inkpad i inked up them up. this gave them a lovely hammered copper look. I stammped the sentiment and hand painted the swirl in the same in and allso brushed the edges of some more brown cs to matt the top layer onto. The glass image from mary hughs was stammed in the same ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then filled this all in with crystal laquer to make them look like glass.
I hope you like it
