And so on to my offering this week.
This week's image is Bella Bride from Sassy Studio Designs. I have coloured her with Promarkers and mounted her onto embossed vellum (not clear in the picture) and white card. Beneath that is a printed wedding vellum and then a pearlised card which has been stamped with swirls. These and all the edges of the papers have been embossed with Enchanted Gold powder.
The corner embellishments were cut using a die from the Floral Doiley Motifs set from Spellbinders and also embossed with Enchanted Gold powder.
I made the flower myself using some lace that I had in my stash and edged it with yellow glitter. I added a yellow rose (also glittered) from Wild Orchid Crafts and a shiny yellow butterfly motif I have had in my stash for ages. The heart charm comes from an old bracelet and has been coloured with alcohol ink.
This is the lace before I gathered it.
To finish off, I added another butterfly and decorated the inside to match. This was a very fiddly card to make (all that embossing!) but I enjoyed every moment and am very happy with the final result. I hope you like too!!
So, now it's your turn - please do visit the DYSU Challenge blog and have a look at what all the other girls have made. There are some great creations to inspire you and we all look forward to seeing what you come up with.
