Wedding Day Pinks

Welcome

Just a personal note - I may not be around the blogisphere much in the next few days as I am having a nerve surgically released in my right elbow tomorrow.  I may hobble around later in the week, typing with my left hand....

This is another card I made for sale locally
The image is a Wedding Couple by Mitzi of Aurora Wings.


I coloured the image with chalks, and after die cutting it (S/B Romantic Rectangles) sponged on some Spun Sugar DI.


The paper I chose for the base was too dark for the softly coloured image, so I placed a layer of  printed vellum over it to mute and soften the colour, and embossed the sentiment in silver over that.  The sentiment is from a now unobtainable Layers of Color set.  I tore the end of the vellum to add interest.


The final details were some flat backed pearls.

I am linking this to:

This is so beautiful - great idea to use chalks.
Ouch - I hope you have a speedy recovery!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

The chalking adds to the elegance of your card. Since you are back already I'm guessing it wasn't too terribly horrible (or else you heal real fast).
