Penny Black Wedding Day ,,,,,

Hi all :-) How are you on this fine spring morning ?? OK I hope and ready for a crafty day :-)

Tuesdays = Papertake Weekly Challenge and this week our lovely boss Dawny has made us a fab sketch to follow ,, I do LOVE Dawny’s sketches ,, so simple and easy !! :-)

I decided to use my Penny Black Bride and Groom stamp, this is a huge stamp, isn’t it gorgeous ! I coloured with copics, gently shading the wedding dress with grey tones. The bride is cut out and popped up to add dimension. I used my Grand Calibur to cut the Grand Circle and Grand Scallop shapes, the papers are from Kaiser Crafts, Pink Gelato pack, all the edges were inked with Spun Sugar DI. I wanted to keep this fairly CAS and just added some fab silver glitter mesh from The ribbon Girl and a little sprig of roses made using a Heart Swirl Die and Mini Rolled Roses,,,, oh and a few Hero Arts pearls to finish :-)

I made a box to pop it in, the tag was in the paper pack so it matches the papers perfectly, the stamped postmark sentiment is from LOTV ! :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 voucher on offer for one lucky person :-)


Thanks for looking, our lovely GD and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the PTW to see them :-)
