To you both

A vintage style wedding card using a Creative Expressions ' Singles' stamp (To Have And To Hold). The image and the Papermania sentiment were stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured in using Promarkers. I then went over the whole image with a Sakura glitter gel pen to give a subtle sheen and glimmer.

The papers are all Dovecraft Curiosity Corner and all the edges have been given the distressing treatment and then inked using a Promarker pen.  The lace border and flowers were fussy cut from the same pack and the flowers were highlighted with the glitter gel pen. The stamp has some roses as part of the image but I overlaid these with paper rose buds which I coloured with Promarkers and glittered. I finished with some pearls.

Love Ride

The Easter Fair has come to town and so has this new collection 'Fun Fair' from Helz Cuppleditch.  I fell in love with this sweet image.  I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured it in with Promarkers (it took quite a while!).

The papers are a combination of Fun Fair and Lucy Cromwell.  I've used a Tonic border punch; Marianne Design die cut heart; Woodware and X Cut leaf punches.  The doily behind the topper is from Dovecraft and I've finished with some rose buds and gems and pearls.
