I'm Not A Witch....

Hi All,

Its my Anniversary soon, and this is the card I have made for hubby. I have gone for funny this year. We both love the film "Princess Bride" We always quote from the film in daily conversations. ie, when hubby goes off to work, when he leaves I will say "have fun storming the castle", "true love - there's nothing like it, except for an M.L.T where the mutton is nice and lean" ...... I honestly could go on and on, there have in fact been times that we have managed to have an entire conversation using only quotes from this film.

In the film there is the quote "I'm not a Witch, I'm your Wife" I say to hubby all the time. So when I saw Krista's images I got the inspiration for this card.

I have designed the card using Seriff again. I love the creative possibility of using digital stamps within Seriff. I have combined a Saturated Canary digi stamp with a Crafty Makes digi. I have also used various digi Kits including elements from a polkadoodle cd.

Although this was designed digitally it was by no means a quick card, it took me a good few hours to design. Another 2-3 hours to colour, I have used copic's and prisma's. and then another 20 minutes or  so to create the decoupage elements.

I am really happy with the results, and I am hoping it will make hubby smile.

  30. Hi hun

    I know it's a bit late for our anything goes challenge but if this is totally digital then you could have entered it at Digitally Sweet - just in case you haven't found us yet. I use Craft Artist all thetime for my DT stuff there and love it. Your card is fantastic and so 3D it is hard to tell it isn't a paper creation. Your colouring is just perfect and I love the sentiment.
