Hi everyone and welcome. A special welcome to Connie who has just joined the Nomad following. Hope you are all having a fun and mojo filled Saturday. The end of the month is looming and as usual there are projects I have been working on, or at least thinking on, that are due for submission. Luckily the weather is a bit so so, a chance to be in and craft. The weeds will still be there later. Or maybe even more weeds!! You can't tame nature, just bully it a little.....
Over at Cheery Lynn this week it's all about weddings. This gave me an ideal opportunity to use my art pads from LOTV. I love these, a bit of a cheat but fab for us what can't colour. Quick if you are in a hurry and a nice variety of images. I was also lucky enough to win the weekly candy draw last week so I got myself a set of their brand new Madame tags. These are so pretty. I expect they will be appearing all over the place. Well, all over my place anyway.....
I wanted to go a bit vintage. Not my strongest style. Not that I'm sure I have a particular style. I'm a bit mix and match maybe? Anyway I found this nice old parchment coloured card and cut a Cheery Lynn English Tea party doily from it. Then I had this gorgeous rose printed card which I cut the same doily from and matted onto the first card. I backed the aperture with Basic Grey Colour Me Silly paper COL-389, which is so not vintage but I loved the bright red and orange to lift everything a bit. Then I mounted the doily cut from the parchment colour card on sticky pads over the aperture, with a slight twist.
I cut the LOTV Mr & Mrs image from the art pad and added some iridescent glitter to her veil and dress. I made a double rosette from the rose card and added some die cut and gold embossed flowers using COL-389 from Sizzix Flowers and Vine #3. The tag is from the LOTV Madame tag set, coloured with DI Walnut Stain and Barn Door. I used glossy accents on the heart. I thought the 'With Love' sentiment fitted perfectly.
A bit of a closer look at the central details.
