Hello Lovelies - how are you? I hope you're fine and well and having a good weekend. We're all good - we'll be losing 'Nana' today which will be very sad. Its always lovely when she comes to visit us! Still - hopefully it won't be too long before she comes again!
I've got a card to share with you today that I made for a commission. Its a wedding card for a lady in my village. She wanted it for a very flamboyant lady and her husband to be - it sounds like a very unusual wedding - hence the very unusual card! But I do like it!
I started off using copper sparkle medium from Imagination Crafts through the peacock mask from That special touch and created the paper that I then die cut into hearts and mounted on an orangey mirri board also diecut into hearts. I added the bride and groom name. Then I die cut the card shape and used distress inks to colour the base of the easel. The top of the easel was also die cut and I mounted the hearts onto this overlapping them slightly before adding the kingfishers cut from a delicious doodles image and coloured with promarkers and the butterflies - also cut from the same image and coloured with promarkers. I added the Maribou Orange feathers to the side - the bride is having three orange feathers coming from a head-dress and a theatrical orange gown! The flowers on the base are WOC and I added them around the edge of the card. The Congratulations was also stamped and added to create the lip behind which the easel could sit.
The lady in the village was ecstatic with the card. I just hope the bride was too!
