Hi girls (and guys)
Just wanted to add a little card that I have made for a friend's wedding. Wendy and Kevin are getting married on Saturday 30th July and I was honoured to make all her wedding and evening invitations, her place names and her seating plan for her, so I wanted to make a really special wedding card for her.
I used two digital images, the magical, whimsical house (which I would love to live in) from Make it Crafty and the couple from Tiddly Inks (my favourite digiartist, Christie Croll is just amazing). I merged the two images together and added a free sentiment from Create with TLC and voila. I printed the image off twice so that I could decoupage some of it over the top and this is what I came up with.
I coloured the image with my promarker pens and then used my coloured pencils to add highlighted and shaded areas and give them more depth, I then went over the whole image with Gamsol to blend the pencil in with the promarkers. This is also good for 'setting' the image, sort of like spraying art work at school with hairspray. It basically stops it from smudging or smearing later from too much handling.
I then painstakingly cut out the 'vines' and the door and then the bride and mounted them onto foam pads to create some 'depth' to the image.
Thank you so much for visiting me today and hopefully, you will take some time to leave me a comment. Good or otherwise. I'm good, I can take critisism. If you don't like something, let me know, it's all good.
Anyway, thank you for taking time out of your day to visit me, and I hope you will remember me and come back soon. Have a great day, hugs xxx
