My card today is for a colleagues wedding which takes place today and we are going to the evening do. I thought I would get away from the traditional white wedding card and get up to date a bit. I just love this Tilda stamp which I have coloured with copics (hair and skin) and the remainder I've used Tim Holtz distress ink pads which I'm just getting into and I'm very pleased with the result. I got the inspiration from a Magnolia Ink Magazine. The sentiment is by Funstamps and the border is a Martha Stewart punch. I used the hearts punched out from the border to decorate the top left hand corner. The red rose I made using Brenda's fantastic tutorial the smaller roses were in my stash which I inked with the Tim Holtz distress inkpad (Tattered Rose). The leaves are die cut . The background is a Pink Petticoat download - Damask. Ribbon and gems from stash.
I decided to make a box for the card as it's a bit bulky for an envelope. I've decorated it with wedding bells cut from the Cricut Wedding cartridge, computer generated names which I then cut and embossed using my nesties. All the distressing was done with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Victoria Velvet.
Hope you like it! Bye for now - Linda x
