Good afternoon all ...
I just thought I would share with you my card that a friend asked me (and paid me woot!) to make for a wedding that she and her hubby were going to ...
This is the first wedding image that I have ever coloured (with ether prisma or copic) and I have to say that I was soooo nervous about it ... There is always that much more pressure when someone asks you to make a card for them, let alone pay you for it lol. I showed Sheree a stack of stamps that she could choose from and she went straight to this gorgeous Tiddly Inks digi image called 'You and Me' ...
I wasn't at all confident with doing the whole 'illusion of white' colouring so went straight for creams and greys and I really like the way that it turned out. I have to say that the lamp post hasn't been served it's right justice in the photo .... it looks so much better and really 'pops' in real life ... I embossed it with a holograhic silver powder (with my hairdryer because my heat gun decided to give up 5 seconds into the process - not happy lol) and then coated it with a gloss.

I guess the important thing is that Sheree and Trevor loved the finished card and I hope the Bride and Groom did too.
I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:
