Hello - Geesh, time is just flying by. Would you believe I had this card in my mind for so long and of course, the night before the wedding, whipped it off under pressure!! And it came together so easily - no layouts or challenges - just an idea in my head for a change, LOL!! I have been meaning to do this card for so long, but have this printer that uses like 5 or 6 cartridges and when one runs out, you can't use it GRRRR! Even if you just want to print black - it just won't do it till you replace whatever empty cartridge regardless. So I had got this digi image from The Greeting Farm and finally got to my hubby's shop and printed it there last week and then Thursday evening began the card for the wedding the next evening :-)
This was for my hubby's half sister who now lives in New Zealand, but she came home for her wedding. She went to teach in Auckland and met a wonderful guy and has made Aukland her home. I knew the colours of the wedding involved yellow and pewter and it turned out that her wedding dress was a very very pale shade of yellow and the bridesmaid dresses were pewter so I was so happy that I chose to make the colours the way I did for the card.
I used The Greeting Farm's digital image called 'Kissy Kissy' and the dp is Basic Grey's Origins. The grooms shoes were shined up with a Sakura clear glaze pen and the bride's flowers and ribbon on her dress got a little bit of sparkle from a clear Spica glitter pen.
The dress and flowers were coloured with a Y11 copic and the blender pen.
