Good morning crafters.
Well we've whizzed around to the 1st of September, what happened there?
Anyway a new month it may be but it's also time for a new challenge at the Alphabet Challenge blog.
This week it was my choice of theme, so I went with
M is for Make Your Mark
This week we would like to see you Make Your Mark by using pens, pencils, chalks, paints, brushes etc.
Here is my inspiration project.
I made this Ruby Wedding card for my best friend from school and her hubby. I don't get to see Ali as much as I would like but as soon as we get together, it's like we've never been apart. Don't you just love to have friends like that. We have so much in common, they have two children like us, they escaped to the country and built their own house as did we and we both married engineers, hers is civil, mine is electrical!
Our Ruby Wedding was last Sunday, Ali's and Rik's is this Sunday, I can't forget that now can I? We had to plan our honeymoon around their wedding.
I used Altenew's I Adore you stamp set, stamping and embossing the flowers on MM paper before colouring with a mix of Zig Pens, Distressed inks and Brusho. I the preceded to fussy cut the individual elements and arrange them in a bouquet. On a die cut panel I splashed some Inka Gold wax in gold (a little wax mixed with water is a good substitute for gold paint) then added the bouquet with glue and a few flowers popped up on pads for added dimension. I used a creamy card stock as I think white was too stark a contrast to the red blooms. I cut a banner from some scrap and stamped the greeting from Uniko, adding gold cut numerals. I used a free die set for this. The gold Congrats is the old faithful Cuttlebug die cut from mirror card,
