Papertake Weekly Challenge Spots and Stripes GD card :-)

Oh I can't believe I am already into week 3 of my 4 weeks as GD on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-) This week the theme is Spots and Stripes ;-) The first thing that popped into my head was Zebra's ,,'stripes !! ,, and as I have a fabulous set of Zoo Animals Vacation stamps I thought I should ink it up ! :-)




My friend's daughter has just got engaged and this card just sort of made itself into an engagement card ,,,, I didn't start with that intention in mind ,,, that just sort of happened by accident !! :-) I hope they like it !! It is unusual for an engagement card eh !!
A Zebra were stamped with memento ink, masked and then the background one was stamped. I coloured them a little with copics ,, making the boy one a bit darker :-) I added jewellery to the girl ,,, a diamond solitaite engagement ring ,,, :-)



The papers are Basic Grey Granola papers, the flowers are from prima ,, I sprayed them with home made glimmer mist ( few drops antique linen distress ink, water and perfect pearls )The lovely charm is from Blue Moon Metal Charm Tokens OX BRASS HEARTS and were a gift from Heidi at Simon Says Stamp The sentiment is from SU :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous creations for you to see so pop over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge to see them and don't forget to leave comments ,,, we all appreciate them :-)
