A Wedding Anniversary Card

A couple of years ago I made an anniversary card, using pens and gels to create an image which has been inspired by cross-stitch.

I used to really enjoy cross-stitching, then moved on and haven’t ever gone back.
I really like Jo Verso’s books though, P1090191 she has created an encyclopaedia of cross-stitch patterns for just about everything!

So, I decided to cheat! I drew a pencil grid on the card and drew on the xxx’s to look like stiches…          p1090189.jpg

Then turned to the alphabet pages in the book.. P1090190 and started to spell out the names and dates I wanted to ‘sew’.

Then as you can see I sewed some hearts and blobbed on some pearly gel…
P1090195

and that was it, I’ve taken out the date to preserve the privacy of the recipients.
P1090197

Fun to do, and a whole lot quicker than sewing! (Though I do love to sew)

Back soon,
love Rosie
