A Good Time For It

Hello.  Welcome.  An unusually lacy creation from me today.

Meet Unity's George and Scarlett.  I used the unity sketch and made a rocker card.  I wanted to keep it monochrome and I don't have much glitter, just a little silver, so I used the MFP tutorial to make just one wide strip of glitter on the background for George and Scarlet to stand on.  To match my colour scheme I decided to try and colour it with alcohol ink. 

Here's a picture of my silver glitter with some drops of raisin alcohol ink.  Was a bit afraid the alcohol ink would affect the sticky on the tape but the glitter stayed in place.  Some more drops of ink and the glitter is custom coloured.  Perfect.  

I added some drops of the alcohol ink in the background and gave it a wash with red brusho powder diluted with water.  I stamped G&S on Prima patterned paper and coloured with distress inks and sharpies.  

I added a bit of lace.  Then I added a bit more lace.    It's a rockin' wedding card.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
