Simply Lovely

I received an order to create a wedding card which is something I have yet to make.  I was excited to use my greeting farm stamp and of course I wanted to make it elegant.  So, I used a stack of paper I had just bought and was eager to use. 

I used my fantastic clear pen to add sparkle to the white bridal dress while using stardust gelly roller pens charcol to add some sparkle to the groom's outfit.  To add more of a distressed look, I did chalk the edges with studio g chalk ink. The circle of for the stamp was used, the edges of the card were used as well as the edges inside the card and all the edges on the envelope I made to bring it all together.

I was so excited about this card, I almost didn't want to give it away.  I secretly have plans to make a duplicate just for me to keep for my selfishness :) 

Lemme know what your thoughts are!

E2 Contest Submission

Hi all!
I wanted to share with you the banner I made and submitted to Cricut for their Expression 2 launch contest.  The only cart I used for the banner is Country Life.  I am still learning but I was extrememly happy with the way this one came out.  I faux stitched the letters and the outside of the banner with white gel pen.  I used matching paper to make the rosettes on the outside of the banner.  The center of the rosette's have a simple white pearl. I also added white lines with a gel pen inside each of the creases of the rosettes to give it a bit of a distressed look.

Let me know what you think, I'm game for feeback :)
