Amour...

As Valentines Day is fast approaching I thought I'd better make something for the other half and decided to dig out my Silhouette machine.
I've had this for ages but hardly ever use it, so have decided to give it a go. They now do tutorials and stuff on their blog which is great as I'm awful about reading instructions - I usually just dive in and experiment!
I love flourishes and text so combined the two. Then I went round the edge with a StazOn inkpad, didn't like that so decided to add stamping as well! I've used the edges of the big letter on the top script on this Elusive Images plate. I added some Basic Grey pearls, et voila....!



Thanks for looking!

Great card for your OH Helen. You've just reminded me I haven't made one for my Hubby yet, Ooo'er! I love that EI stamp plate and use those two script stamps regularly both in their own right and using the flourishes from the writing. They are so useful.
