My second post for the day! This time a bit more romantic. When you are a young, you believe that you will have honeymoon for ever. But that is not very long lived, according to a british study (2008) the honeymoon phase only last 31 months and 25 days. Then reality kicks in and you have to cope with everyday stress. So, for me, the picture of two elderly people still holding hands is the ultimate form of love. For it takes a lot to keep the romance alive in the mist of everyday hustle and bustle. With all the current valentine challenges, I've decided maybe it is time to work on my own romance for a change as well. Hubby just might need it. I only hope he will be around on the 14th of February. Now, for my project. A gate folding card. I've used a Mo Manning Clear stamp called Jack & Ginger. Instead of normal black ink I've used a light grey and coloured it with aquarelles. I saw that this is the new tendency to do colouring. I did some lacé technique on the background. The papers is from my scrapbook stash. Used a fiskar heart corner punch and added some heartshape rhinestones. The sentiment was computer generated and say "I wanna grow old with you on my side".
I was guided by the following challenges:
