Penny Black Wedding Card

Hi all :-) I hope you're all fit and well and looking forward to THE wedding tomorrow :-) I will be in a local bar watching the events on a big screen with loads of other people ,,, mainly British ,, drinking tea and eating cucumber sandwiches !! :-) ,,, lol

I just received this fab Penny Black Bride and Groom stamp and couldn't wait to ink it up and enter a few challenges with it !! :-)



I coloured the image with Copics ,,,, not much ink used here, but I did add some C00 to the dress for shading which doesn't show on the piccy :-) I glittered the flowers and edges with Star Dust stickles. I kept the colour scheme pretty simple. I used a EK Success border punch and white embossed card for the backgrounds. I used a little silver ribbon and a rose from WOC. The gems are from Prima and were a gift from blog buddie Chris xx I added a few extra gems to balance the card and that was it ,,,,!!



Challenges:

Penny Black Saturday ,,,, Happily Ever After

Crafty Creations ,,,, White Space

Crafty Cardmakers ,,,Red/White/Blue and /or Wedding

Die Cut Dreams ,,,,, Wedding

I won't look at the wedding coz i'll work but i'm sure i'll see some images at the evening news on tv. Be carefull : Tea, cucumber sandwiches and friends could be an explosive mixture !!!! lol.
Hope you are fine !
