We used reinkers and aquabrushes to color the petals and envelopes - I didn't do too well on mine - I always seem to add too much color and so don't get that wonderful shading other people can achieve. I definately need some practice on it! We were given extra blossoms stamped to color and cut out so we could layer them over the first stamping. We used sponge daubers on the edges with Soft Sky ink and layered the plain ovals onto scalloped ovals. For the card on the left - we used a copic marker to color the middle strip of the ribbon - boy did that work nicely!And then we all got a clear box from Gina K Designs - to slip our cards and envelopes into and we made a belly band to go around the box. The smaller flower was white which we again colored with a copic - how great does this whole thing look!!! I'm going to send this to my dear Aunt Edie who just turned 90 today - she likes to send notes to people and she always appreciates getting cards that I stamp - she will just LOVE this set!
I had mentioned that I had to leave the weekend a little early in order to attend my niece's wedding shower so I thought I'd share just a couple of pictures of it.
Here is bridesmaid, Jenn, future bride Katie, her sister Christy, and bridesmaid Amanda.
And here is the gift I gave her - This is a really neat basket carved out of a tree trunk that I got at the Brimfield Fair last fall. I like to give unusual gifts that they will remember came from their wedding. whenever they use it. (guess this fits the bill!) Katie's wedding colors are Ripe Avocado and Strawberry Fizz. She and I also made her Wedding Invitations, seating cards and program using these colors from Papertrey Ink. We did some computer printing and some stamping. I forgot to take pics before she took them all home - but hope to take some later to post.
This is the card I made for them as well as a case of personalized notes (you can see my post on them here). The card uses Verve Visual Anniversary Birds set, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
I still have 2 more projects from SNE to finish - so check back to see them!
thanks so much for coming by!
