Vintage Wedding

Hi All,

Another wedding card for me and I have gone all vintage this time .... The image is from a Joanna Sheen CD .... I have added some distress ink round the edges, teamed it up with papers from My Mind's Eye .... the little film strip is from Bo Bunny and I have embelished up using dies from HOTP, Tim Holtz and x Cut.

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:
