Todays card is a request from a friend to make an engagment card for her. Now I love making this style of cards with images to colour and lots of patterned papers but it is not everyones cup of tea. Years ago I used to sell my cards to friends and family and at a local post office and I cringe at them now. A wee thing stuck here and a flower there...but people bought them !!!
Now I have had a few people say to me they prefered my cards when they were not so 'busy'. I just think man..how much have I progressed since then. Even hubbie takes some convincing that I feel I have learned a lot and progressed since my days of decoupage and peel offs... ( I am ashamed to say!!)
Anyway the point of that was I am not sure whether this card will be in her taste..... I shall wait and see and let you know the outcome. I will be able to read it on her face!!
Right..I followed the fabulous sketch on Ismaki this week. My image is quite large so hides quite a lot of the papers...but I still went with it. I stamped two hAnglars side by side and they even look like they might be holding hands! They are coloured with prismas. The papers are from BG 'Bittersweet' collection and are distressed then stitched together. I have stamped an October Afternoon flourish and highlighted parts of it with white ink pen.
For the inside I have followed the same theme and kept if fairly simple...a bit like myself!
Hope you have a great Friday and enjoy your weekend! I am hoping for a little melt of some snow !
