Wedding card

I made this card for my step-daughter Kristy's wedding. She married Mat on July 30th, 2011. The lily is made from the stamp Jumbo Tiger Lily from Stampendous. I used white embossing powder on glossy cardstock and then stippled in some ink for the colour. I cut out the flower and popped it up on the background that I had embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The background was mounted over silver metallic cardstock.

I copied a wedding poem and printed it on the computer for the inside sentiment. I made corners in the silver metallic cardstock using a cuttlebug die.

Kristy loves lilies so when I found this stamp a few months ago I had to buy it to use for her. This is the back of the card. I stamped the frame and then masked it and stamped the lilies to make them look like they were behind the frame.
The wedding was wonderful, the bride was beautiful and the couple looked so happy.
I had fun creating this wedding card for their special day.
Have a fabulous day!

Art Journal - Searching

This journal page was made using the Symmetry (Fish Heads) Sheet #5 from Stampscapes.  I stamped the images on the right hand side page and then drew the extended lines for the left side page. I drew in the rest of the scene and then coloured it in with oil pastels. I wrote the journaling using a sharpie marker. The fish looked to me like they were searching and it made me think that we spend much of our time searching in our lives too.
I love the freedon of creating anything you want in an art journal.
Take care and happy creating!
