Wedding fever......

Well we all watched the wedding and ohhhed and ahhhed at the lovely couple so I thought I'm make a pariotic wedding card in red, white and blue, unfortunately I didn't have any Union Jack paper so had to make do with the papers I'd got, I even managed some recycling as the shimmery white paper was origianlly in the window in my shop at Christmas as part of the window display and I couldn't bear to thrown it so I salvaged some to use........I've gone overboard with the glitter as always but it is a celebartion, I've tried a new way of adding glitter to the design by using doubled sided sticky paper that I die cut and then rubbed on the glitter afterwards for a lovely shimmery effect. The image is from Lili of the Valley and I've had this stamp ages and ages and this is the first time I've inked it up.....shame on me! I coloured the horse with Prisma pencils and the rest of the image was coloured with....yep you guessed it Twinkling H20s with lots of bling using stickles Star Dust and Gold. I'm off for a few days now so I've got the garden still to finish, I need to dye my hair today as I look  like a badger (grey and black).....lol, its def. not a good look, I keep saying I'm going to grow out the coloured bit and go grey all over but my kids won't let me, I think its an age thing but I'm fed up keep colouring every 6 weeks or so and after doing that I'm going to have another play with my melt pot.

Daniele this is just beautiful. So much attention to detail. I particularly love that you have coloured the groom to look like Wills did in his smart Guards' uniform!

Sorry Daniele, me again, lol

I just realised that you have entered this into 12 challenges so unfortunately will not be eligible for a prize this time as we have a new rule of only ten challenges, including our own. However, I am still really pleased I got the chance to see this little beauty and hope to see you again.
