LOC How Do I Love Thee...

How do I Love Thee...the perfect theme for the Stamping Sisters in Christ Challenge this week, where we are to create something for the one we love and NOT wait for a special occasion to give it to them...it has to be given before we link it to Stamping Sisters in Christ! It is Father's day here on Sunday and I wanted to have a special page done for my DH...so this is it...and he hasn't had to wait until Sunday...

I love this page, I hunted through photos to find ones of my DH at different ages and the thing I noticed most is that lovely smile of his, it lights up our house. Those who know him, know how he LOVES to laugh...I just love that smile, it comes from the heart and show in his eyes - wins me every time!

I have used Layers of Color Stamps, starting with the border images which are from the Birdday Party set,which I have stamped with Distressing Ink and lightly chalked the leaves with a darker blue to enhance it and compliment the blue in the photo. I love brown and blue together, particularly on a masculine page.
The border along the photos is from the Architectural Blocks set, I have chalked it and added Kindly Glitz to areas - it is so hard to get this to show up properly - I can see I am going to have to invest in some Daylight Lamps for photographing! The photo, which is my DH on our Wedding Day, is layered onto brown CS which has been distressed and then Architectural Borders added on the side. I cannot imagine a page without layers, it adds so much dimension for me.

The Birdday Party set has been used for this border as well, it has also been chalked. The sentiment is computer generated. I have torn the edge and inked it with distressing ink, this is a favourite technique of one, I love the texture it can add!

Thank you for looking and for your comments, you always brighten my day!! God bless you!
