I hope you're all well? It has warmed up a lot here since my last post and almost all the snow from around my house has gone, but there's still a lot over the Mourne Mountains a few miles away. Lot's of people are enjoying it by going up and skiing etc, but I'm afraid that's not for me!
Apparently there has even been an avalanche! I've never heard of there being an avalanche in our wee mountains before and luckily no-one was near it.
Time for another Pink challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and it's our lovely Claire's turn to host. The challenge she has chosen for the next week is...
Wedding, Engagement or Anniversary!
A fab challenge for this time of year as there are always so many weddings taking place!
Speaking of which, my card was made for my cousin and his lovely bride who got married last week on Easter Monday! Of course we all wondered up until the bitter end if it was all an elaborate April Fool, but so far, it seems legit! Lol!
I made an Easel card
My most-used-ever stamp is You & Me Baby by Tiddlyinks. I adjusted the print colour to sepia before I printed it and coloured it with the following copics: Skin: E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair and clothing: E39,37,35,33,31,30,29,R39,07,Blender.
I printed the sentiments along with the image by adding them on Powerpoint. I also printed the names onto corresponding card. The corner swirly stamp is a mixture of two - the bigger one is a LOTV clear stamp and the smaller one is by Magnolia. The die is Decorative Labels 8 from Spellbinders.
I don't know the manufacturer of the paper as it is a really old one from my stash and there was no name on it. The pearls and lace are from my stash and I distressed everything (including the lace) with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress inks.
I added a place to write your greeting under the easel with a computer generated sentiment. The sentiment on the mini tag is from Wild Rose Studio. I also added a little pocket for a gift to be enclosed.
So go take a look at the fab inspiration from the rest of the DT at Eclectic Ellapu!
