Passion For Promarkers - here comes the bride

Our challenge for this week at Passion For Promarkers is 'here comes the bride', and I must admit I was a little bit worried... I'm never very happy with my wedding cards.  I'm not sure what it is about them, but I seem to go a bit blank when I try and make one.  I think it's maybe because I have it in my head that they must be 'special' and that makes me nervous lol... there's no hope for me really is there?  We're sponsored by the lovely Sally-Ann at DigiStamp Boutique :o)



My image is from DigiStamp Boutique of course - this is the bride & groom from the Cute Wedding Collection.  Coloured with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils, with lots of glamour dust on the bride's veil.  Papers are Paper Cellar, with core'dinations cardstock, sentiment is LOTV.  The flowers were punched with an x-cut punch, then snipped with scallop scissors and sprayed with iridescent spray & sparkle, added pearl centres.

For a change I actually quite like this now it's finished, although it took AGES for quite a simple card! A lot of my time was spent just staring at it though, trying to work out what else it 'needed'.

I've scheduled this post because I think I might be having a sneaky visit to a craft shop with a friend after I've dropped the boys at school/ nursery :o)  So I'll be back to link up to challenges later.

  15. I think it's beautiful. Such a cute image. I hope you didn't buy any paper today. I had a ban earlier this year for about 2 months then saw some I just couldn't resist. Haven't bought too much this year yet but if I never bought another stamp or paper I could make hundreds of different cards. Why is paper so addictive? Marianne x
