Happy Friday afternoon, and hope it's as lovely where you are as 'tis in our Upstate SC area today. Sunshine, blue skies, warm, & a good breeze. I have mentioned that we have a big milestone anniversary coming up this summer, so I wanted to get a special card made, for this very special guy. Worked up a card last night, don't think it's the one I'll use....BUT at least I've got one ready. After I made it, I decided I can do better than this, and need to do a card that some copic coloring on it....
Here's the card:
- white cryogen c/s embossed with Cuttlebug Geometric rings, tiny pearls added to centers
- gold ribbon from stash
- sentiment diecut with S/Binders Opulent Ovals. - clear stamps from a set, inked with Tsukineko Delicata gold.
The sentiment looks like it's on crooked in this picture, but it looks straight on the card. This kind of thing bugs me. I think this and the sanding bit, may be what I don't really like about this one. So it will be back to the drawing board, but at least, I've got something in a pinch. This guy deserves more than just 'in a pinch', after putting up with ME for 50 yrs. Never mind, don't answer that!!! <g>
Here's some more jewels to drool over:
I don't know about you, but I'd never heard of Kunzite! Just as info, these gems achieve their colorations by the pressure, heat of the earth, depth and surrounding earth materials in which they form.(I hope I relayed that correctly). We saw numerous displays of different gems in various stages of formation. These beautiful things look much different in their natural state than after being cut & polished. The individual setting also makes a big difference as to the gem's best display too.
That's my bit for today. Hope you enjoyed the visit, and come back again when you have time. Always love reading comments that are left....have a wonderful afternoon. Hugs
