Kim here with a quick card share! This fun anniversary card came together pretty quick. My background is from a gel print I made last year. I often pull out my Ranger Gel Printing Plate and Ranger Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint and just play.

I quickly added soft colour to the bride’s flowers with my Tonic Studios Nuvo Alcohol Markers, they worked perfectly on the shiny surface of the paper dolls. I stained some…
