Truly Madly Deeply – Always and Forever

Hi Everyone,

Linda here with a layout using the beautiful Always and Forever by Kaisercraft. Is it just me or do you all want to sing the song now? (Must be my age lol!)

Anyway, I wanted to focus on the stamp set this time as it has the most beautiful rose image.

IMG_1012 smallI began with a sheet of Kaisercard in vanilla¬†and stamped the bottom right corner with “always and forever” (singing again!” in black archival ink using the stamp set, plus “xo” around the edge. (XO = hugs and kisses in case you were unsure not OXO cubes ūüôā )

On a piece of smooth white card, I stamped “you + me”¬†plus the rose six times. I tinted the words with Antique Linen Distress ink¬†and trimmed, the roses were coloured with Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss¬†– blended together with a water brush. I left these aside to dry.

I cut a piece of Champagne¬†6×6″ and backed it with Licorice also – in fact everything has been! Then a piece of Admire¬†5×6″. My photo is 4×4″.

IMG_1014 smallI cut two roses out in full, then just the bud and finally one petal, these were layered using mounting foam. I also cut extra leaves, one set to layer and one to embellish.

Truly Madly Deeply is from the Sticker sheet¬†and I had to have more bling, so layered this and the “you + me” I’d stamped onto the Champagne and also Licorice, then theses were raised on mounting foam¬†and placed onto the page to “anchor” down the roses and extra leaves.

Finally a touch of glitter pen to the rose petal and a couple of Coral Sparklets and I was done.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this, check back later for more inspiration from the DT.

Until then, take care,
