A First Anniversary!

 
     Has it really been a year since my DS and his beautiful bride said "I Do".  Here is a card that I came up with, using my Raisin Boat, Birthday Brewing set.  This mug stamp had a center opening, so I decided I wanted to do a reverse and add the Mr. and Mrs.  Well, I don't own a reverse stamp, but I recently ran across a tutorial over at OWH, Stars and Stamps Blog, showing how you can make it work. The mug with mrs. is the reverse one.


    
     Here is the stamp I used.  I filled in all the spaces with a black Zig pen.  Coloring was then done with Copic markers.  I followed the directions from the tutorial, and it worked out well.  Not perfect, but acceptable.  My papers are from My Minds Eye, Happy Day collection.  I found a digi in my stash, that I took into a program, and added the 1st to.  I added some Crystal Effects to parts of the mugs, to add some shine, and pearls to the corners to dress things up.

     That is it for me right now.  Thanks for taking a peek.  Check out the tutorial on the Stars and Stamps blog, if you get a chance.
