Hi there, well Spring is in the Air here in my little corner of the UK and its also our theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. We have a fabby prize from the lovely Marina of Cottage Crafts, our generous sponsor and as always my talented teamies have come up with some gorgeous projects. Sorry for the dreadful pics of my DT project, my camera has given up the ghost and I'm using hubbys at the minute, unfortunately its a bit too technical for me and I can't seem to take decent photo with it. In fact they're even worse than usual lol.
I always think of flower and the beautiful shades of yellow in our gardens when I think about spring, and of course Spring is the season for weddings. In fact 50 years ago today, my lovely MIL and FIL were married so I decided to make a spring themed Golden Wedding card for their special anniversary. Its even more special as my FIL has been very seriously ill and a couple of weeks ago we didn't think we'd be celebrating so this is a very happy weekend for our family :-)
Anyway to make my card, I used various shades of yellow and gold h2o's on watercolour card to create the background, I splodged them on and covered it with clingfilm to dry. I'm really pleased with the effect, it looks almost like taffeta. The lace border and corners are stamps from Joanna Sheen, embossed on vellum with Gilded Ivory EP and cut out.. The focal image is an image transfer of one of the happy couple's wedding photos, popped onto canvas and framed with a crackled and pearl embossed frame. I added a venise lace heart, and some paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. To create the '50' I cut the numbers from shrink plastic and popped them in clear UTEE in my melting pot. Once they were cool, I brushed them with flitter glue and added gilding foil, you can see them a bit better in this pic.
