Austin Love

Hi All,

Yaaaay ..... I'm blogging, I am trying my best to have the odd crafty session and turn some of my recently coloured images into cards.

I have had this one done for a couple of weeks, however it was for a friend who sometimes checks out my blog so I had to make sure she didn't see it before her Anniversary.

The fabby images are from the polkadoodle Rosebud CD ..... love it sooooooooo much, love Jane Austin so much, the colours are quite retro, but hey that is artistic license, and I chose the teal colours to match my friends living room. I stamped the edges with a little kanban stamp and teamed it up with some bo bunny papers.

I would like to enter this one into the following challenges:

An Austin Wedding

Hello All,

Its been a while, but we have been working on the house again, on the home straight now ordered the carpets and just got the garden to clear .... it's been over a year of mayhem, but the extra space is lovely, and I on the fun decorating bit now :-)

Anyhoo ....... Just had to get the new polkadoodles rosebud CD, as I am a huge Jane Austin Fan, I just needed it!!! Mr Darcy!!!!! need I say more.

I really wanted to play with my new CD, but I also really need wedding cards, as I have a friend getting married on Friday, and I need a card for that and a few commissioned one's too. There was no Bridal Austin Figures, but I went with this little sweetie ... I decided to add some flowers to her hair and create a boquet, to make her look more bridal, and hopefully that works!!

The background and the images are from the polkadoodle CD. I have coloured the characters using copic's and Spectrum Noir pencils. I also went over the brides dress with twinking H2'os (oyster) I have added some lace some dies and a sentiment created on my computer. The flowers I have created by stamping onto both pink and green vellum with a Kanban stamp and embossing with a WOW sparkling snow embossing powder. I also used a Martha Stewart punch to create a layer of the lace and the edge of her vale. and finally added some pearls and bling.

This is my entry for:

The Crafting Cafe - Love and Marriage
Crafty Calender - Petals and Pearls
Crafting form the Heart - Anything Goes
