A wedding Card

On Sunday I was a matron of honor in a wedding for our good friends Adrian & Andrea. My husband was also the best man so it was nice that we got to dress up and act all fancy together! The weather was absolutely beautiful and of course the bride looked very pretty. Anyhow last week I sat down and made their card. I actually made their invitations at the beginning of the year and held back some of the lace and ribbon I used. I then used the main colours of their invitations/wedding theme and coloured the gorgeous Mo Manning image.

I actually mucked up with colouring this image as I added to much grey in the shading (as picked up the wrong copic) taking away from the white but decided rather than start again to experiment. I ended up getting out my old stampin up watercolour crayons and going over the image in white crayon using my aqua painter. It actually worked, bringing out some nice highlights, although not sure how effective it would be if I had lots of colour work.

School has gone back this week but my little man has the chicken pox. I am now stuck at home again (not so good when you have a million and one things to do) so hopefully I will get some crafting down over the next few days. I feel like everything has been so crazy here lately and that my crafting is what has been sacrificed.

Anyhow I best be going, time to make some lunch I am told!

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time
