Happy Anniversary.....

 Wild weather so the only thing to do is stay in and craft!
Today's Card.....


I had some flowers left over after my play day with this previous card.
These where stamped, fussy cut and watercoloured.
I have stencilled with paste and heat foiling and also with grey inks.

I splattered with silver and found it hard to photograph,
as the splats looked horrendous! ....... Although Pretty in real life.
Finishing off with the sentiment and heat embossing
 the edges of the card with silver.
I also made a box as it was for a special Anniversary.

Please stay safe and warm out there....
The strength and the sound of the winds can be quite terrifying.......

Challenges that I would love to enter........
Thrilled with my Top Pick.....Thank you x
Stamping is prominent & With the option of using stencils
Thank you so much for the top 3 shout out x
Stamping must be prominent and this time without the option

OMG !!! This card is stunning and the look of these wild rose flowers is so naturalistic !! A true mastery of watercolors, Mac. I cannot get enough of this masterpiece. I love this card and the box is a preview of what can be found inside. A stunning heel card.
Mac, do you remember the name of the stamps you used to create these beautiful flowers?
hugs,
BożenA

Those silver splats do not look horrendous at all! and the shine is clear in the pictures, honestly you set yourself to such a high standard! My one and only attempt at heat foiling was horrendous but you might have tempted me to try again with this beautiful stencilling. Mrs Mabel you have done it again and produced an outstanding piece of work, thank you for sharing this with us at We Love Stamping xoxo

We've got the winds going here too Mac...Michele and I both thought our roofs were going to blow off last night! Ahhhhh, the joys of Winter! Still windy today too, but the sun is out and shining on the snow, so as long as I stay inside and craft like you, I'm good! (it's only 10 degrees out!) But anyway, back to your card...it's absolutely GORGEOUS Mac and definitely deserves its own special box to be delivered in! I just love those flowers and orange & pink is one of my favorite color combinations....they're absolutely STUNNING!! And all the beautiful silver and embossing...puts this card right over the top my friend! Hugs. :0)

Pat said...

Gorgeous flowers and the texture paste with the silver foiling is gorgeous and I think the silver splatters look great, and I must try heat embossing the edge of the card as this finishes it beautifully, as does that fabulous box with the images embossed on the top and the added pink ribbon finishes it perfectly. Whoever receives this will be over the moon! x

Brenda in IN said...

The silver sentciling is lovely and those flowers are gorgeous. I just watched jets land in that wind on youtube and it was wild.

There are no words to express how stunned I am by the beauty of your card, Mac. The way you've done the background, your coloring of the flowers, making it extra special with the box... all so gorgeous!

Faith A at Daffodil Cards said...

It's always a joy to see what you have been up to Mac, this again, is just perfection and absolutely gorgeous Mac. I love the silver and the gorgeous box, which makes it so stunning, a card and gift in one box.
I hope you saw Porthcawl on the news, Eunice was such a strong girl wasn't she? Luckily we got through unscathed.
Keep warm.

I love this card! Beautiful silver embossing down the left side, gorgeous flowers - such lovely colours and fabulous watercolouring and splattering. Your high winds have even made my local Vancouver newspaper! I do hope they are over - wind can be terrifying for sure.

Another day, another storm! Hope you are keeping safe. This is a truly amazing card, so beautiful, love that paste work so much and the flowers. Thanks for sharing with us at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations challenges.

HilaryJane said...

This is so pretty, I am always glad when you have had some crafting time. I do look forward to your posts. The silver embossed paste looks fabulous (must try that) and your splatters are perfect. I am realising that an embossed edge is a bit of a trade mark on your cards. It always gives that extra bit of interest and looks so classy. Well done for using your left over bits, it took a while but is done now. Thanks for sharing it with us at we love stamping, it came up on my commenting number too. I am a bit behind as I took the weekend off from commenting xx

Maria said...

An absolutely beautiful anniversary card! The pink flowers are so pretty along with the silver stenciling! And, how special to make a pretty box for it! I’m sure the recipient will be thrilled to receive such a beauty!

Greta said...

Beautiful flowers & I love the silver splatters! Very special card for a special anniversary! Hope the storm didn't cause problems for you!

Stef Perry said...
