Love Is Gone...............or is it????????

Hello everyone how are you all today? Today I have another ordered card to show you. I got asked to make an Anniversary card but his wife had already seen me colour in an image & she fell in love with it so asked if I still had it & would I use it on an Anniversary card for him. 90% of my images are coloured way before I have any idea what project they will be used for, let alone what papers I will use. I know I'm not supposed to but I've done it this way for sooooooo long & I have that many papers I KNOW I will have something to match lol.
Anyway I will shush & show you the card................

This is of course my favourite ever Sweet Pea stamp & it took me ages to get cus she was always out of stock last year.........I think its actually my most used stamp I think I've used 4 possibly 5 times.
That is a lot for me as half of mine still havnt seen ink lol.

Papers are Websters Pages I did get them from Crafty Emma's but she hasnt got them anymore. All papers I matted onto black card.
Used 6x6 'Petal Point' card blank. Wood heart painted white & glazed.

Flowers are all from WOC, I've had these sooooo long!! Lace & velvet ribbon from my stash.
Twill Sentiment used 'You've capture my heart'

This is the inside used heart nestability top & bottom, 1 for the sentiment here this one says
 'Grow old with me, the best is yet to come'
The sentiment at the bottom is computer generated & I'm not sure where it was originally from!
Chipboard heart from my stash

This is of course 'Love Is Gone' by Ching Chong-Kuik for Sweet Pea Stamps, she is also available from Crafts & Me in the UK.
Here are the copic colours used.........this is an image I was originally experimenting with some colours.
Skin - E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 & R11
Hair & Skirt - C9 N7 & N4
Reds - R59 R46 R17
Leaves - G29 G17 G14
Eyes - C3 & C00 & Moon - E50
Eyes were enhance using Graphic Art Liner 0.30 & I also used 90% warm grey & white Prisma pencils.
Luckily after I took piccies I realised I hadnt done her arm-band, unfortunately I forgot to take piccies again after & it went to its new owner lol.

Last piccy phew lol........ The recipient absolutely loved it which I was really pleased & happy about.

Well thats it from me thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by.
Big huge hugs to you all mmwah xxx

I am never sure if people believe my comments that i leave but I really do get so emotional when I see the beauty that crafters produce, this one is a card that invokes the senses and to see so much beautiful work in one card is truly wonderful, the design, colours, embellishments and image are outstanding.
