Mr and Mrs!
I was asked recently if I could make a wedding card for a friend (hello Michael!). I was delighted to do so and rumaged around in my box (es!) of stamps to find a suitable one. As this card was from a bloke to his brother ..man to man....I din't want the image to be too girly or cute...but then again the card was for a wedding so had to be pretty but not too masculine.
So out came a very old ...but eminently suitable wood mounted 'Stampendous' stamp. This must have been one of the very first stamps I bought. Now I have a cupboard full :)
Having never attempted yet a WOW (white on white card) I knew that this was the perfect time! The image is coloured with prisma pencils and some stickles for her veil. The edging of the image is also done in stickles. I stamped the sentiment and the image in Memento Brown ink to give it a softer look. I have used a gorgeous doily and some embossed cardstock to make the base of the card. I have made some more of the rolled flowers.....coz I just love them! I then tied a bow with some organza ribbon, added a little ribbon slider and some lovely paper rose buds.
This card will be popping into my Etsy shop today!
Thanks for your visit....as always it is greatly appreciated!
