CCM #258 Wedding

I hope everyone is keeping well. Our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers today is Wedding. I had no idea when I chose this challenge for the 1st of June, a traditionally popular month for weddings here in the UK, that there would be no weddings! What a surreal situation we find ourselves in.

So my card started with the gorgeous Tiddly Inks image, which comes in both jpg and png formats and also comes with or without the veil. I obviously plumped for the one with the veil.

I coloured the image with my copics, and glittered over her veil with a combination of a lovely soft pink and some white very fine glitter. I also added gems for her ring, her heart pendant and her tiara.

My papers are from Crafters Companion’s Garden of Love set. They have several with lovely dots of gold foiling on and I chose two to complement the colours in my image. I Cut an aperture in the rose background paper and placed it over the image. I then created both a frame for the image and a frame for the card itself with Sue Wilson double stitched dies in both the square and the circle from some lovely soft pink paper with more gold foiling.

The sentiment is a Spellbinders Glimmer foil plate and I foiled it in rose gold foil and cut it out with the matching die.


My flowers and the gems and glass teardrops dotted amongst the flowers are all from my stash.

Once again I must apologise for the quality of my photography. I desperately need a new camera but I keep buying craft and can’t afford both!!!!

The image right at the top is closest in colour tone and hue to the original, but the warmer ones beneath do show the floral arrangements better.
