Fingers and thumbs........

Afternoon to you all hope you are having a relaxing Bank Holiday, mind you the weather is pants, such a grey rainy day, mind you I managed to finish this Lay Out this morning, I've been working on it for the past two days and I'm trying to do a page a month for my daughters wedding album. Sorry there are quite a few  piccies for this post, I was inspired by the sketch over at Scrapology and went over board with the bling.

The flowers are made using the flower stamp set by Heartfelt Creations called Open Vintage floret I didn't use the largest stamp but used the other three sizes as well as the matching dies for the layers, I stamped the flowers on off white card and embossed with Aurora embossing powder and used chipped sapphire distress ink to add colour to the petals. The leaves which is stamp set Open Leaf which I stamped with Memento Paris Dusk ink and again added embossing powder before cutting out.

The edges of the background paper from DCWV I stamped with a Kaisercraft edge stamp, embossed it with sea foam white embossing powder from Wow, I used a French script stamp from Crafty Individuals and stamped with London Fog ink around the edges, I edged the paper with a gold pen afterwards, swiping it over the white embossing as well.

I wish I had laced my daughters dress much earlier than I did as my hands were shaking that much I was literally all fingers and thumbs and struggled to get it done in time.
Thanks for taking a peek
