Love you tree

Love you tree Heather Telford

One of my favourite things to do with PB creative dies is to cut masks. For today’s card I diecut the ‘tree of love’ from masking paper then stuck it to white card stock and added a hill mask over the base of the trunk. I used three memento inks to sponge a graduated background then flicked colour from matching coloured pencils. I stamped a few hearts from the cute little ‘posted with love’ set then added the sentiment from ‘so very much’. The panel is popped up on a cardbase of the same cardstock.

Thank you for your kind wishes for Andrew’s and my anniversary; I enjoyed reading them while in New York. We had a wonderful time and I will write about it a bit and post some photos soon. I do have a confession to make however. My patient and kind husband has not received his card yet. I did not write in it before we left thinking that I would write in it during the day and give it to him at dinner on the night of our anniversary. What I didn’t count on was the fact that we were always together (not a complaint by the way, just an observation) so I did not get a chance. Later in the day I told him not to read my blog post that day but I was too late; while I was trying on clothes in Anthropologie, he had been catching up on blog posts. So even though we have been home for several days they have been full days and now I am sick in bed. It seems that my “postal disorder” extends even to the cards I don’t have to post!

    Get well soon, Heather. Your posts are my favorites, and I’ve made some progress in my own dabblings due to your good photos and generous sharing of process.
    Happy Anniversary!

    This is lovely Heather and what a great idea to cut a mask from a die and the heart tree is such a good one to use for this purpose. I’m sorry you’re not well at the moment and hope you will soon be feeling better. x

    I find that red sponging/spattering doesn’t always work (just looks too much like a tv crime scene) but it definitely works here! Sorry to hear you’re not well, and too funny about the card. I always give my husb plenty of warning not to look at my blog. 😉

    Heather, I don’t often post but I view your blog regularly. This is a beautiful Valentine! And your New York City card was also fabulous and made my own heart skip a beat because I once lived in NYC. (Now retired, we live in Phoenix.) Thank you for sharing your gorgeous works of art.

  6. Hope you are feeling better! Your card is so cute! I forget that die cuts can make great masks – I think I am going to try this sometime soon. I got some new water color crystals and I think this technique would work well with them. Love that you did this with sponging!

  7. […] I managed better with this card than the anniversary card; I wrote in it and gave it to him before posting it here on the blog. To create this scene I started by flicking masking fluid onto my small watercolour […]
