3 years and counting

Aloha everyone. I am so behind on challenges at SCS so I threw in three challenges on one card to make an anniversary card for that upcoming 3 years. The card is a 4 1/2" sqare on baby blue. The sketch is from SCS, of course.

To follow the masquarade challenge I punched a bunch of small circle and tapped them on the front of the card and then used my Archival Teal and a cotton ball to sponge ink over the front. Once i removed the circles I had polka-dotted paper that wasn't too girly and busy. I really like this new technique. I will have to use it more often!

The limited supplies challenge was to use no sentiments on the front of your card. Instead use numbers. What better challenge for an anniversary! Thus the 3 that was stamped inside the heart. Awwwwww....

So, now I have a polka-dotted background so I cut a large blue assymetrical piece and then layered a piece of heart designer paper and adhered that to the left of the card. I'm not sure if you can see the hearts in the designer paper :( For the main image I stamped a little boy, a little girl and a heart on a piece of basic white, cut those out and layered on a piece of blue with pop-up dots to give it some dimension. I then layered that on a scalloped black rectange.

For details I sponged teal around the heart designer paper and a glitter gel pen to doodle faux stitching around the outer edge. For the main image I added some color to the little people's clothes, faux stitching around the edge and 4 brads on the scallops.
