Sweet Stamps Challenge #104 Romance

Today is our 104th challenge on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog.
This week the challenge is to create a card using the theme ROMANCE!!!
  Now is your chance to show us your talent as you create your project using our theme ROMANCE, either Wedding, Anniversary, Valentine's Day, you decide!!!

Remember to use a Sweet Stamps image on your creation to get an extra chance at winning
$20 of rubber stamps from Sweet Stamps!!!
This was a very difficult card to photograph.  I began with a frame, Scroll Scissors Frame which I stamped using White Dye Ink  on Vellum.  The frame was heat embossed with White Fine Detail EP .
This frames cuts easily using the Seagull Decorative Edge Scissors .  I dry embossed the frame using the following tools: Etching/Embossing Mat , and   Soft Grip Stylus Tools .   I inked up the image Antique Dancing Couple with Shades Stormy Gray Dye Ink in the center of the frame.  I wanted to create this card with grays, black and white.  I wasn't happy with all the white around the couple so I airbrushed the backside of the frame with Copics T4 marker.  That was perfect.  I added a very minimal color to the image.  The greeting is Happy Anniversary  stamped with Distress Ink Clear Embossing Pad  and heat embossed with White Fine Detail EP.  The pearls were created with Pearl Pens

Other Sweet Stamps Product used:  Vellum Adhesive Spray and Great Tape.

 The finished size of the card is 5" x 7".

Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!!
