Gold wedding card

A wedding card made for my nephew.  I used some Sue Wilson and some Spellbinders flower dies.

Clarity calendar challenge - March

Clarity challenge 37 - All about the girls

I used a lot of masks in this project!  At first I was a bit disappointed that the ink had seeped under some of them a bit but then I decided I quite liked the effect.  I stamped the words first and then masked them off.  Placing the inner part of the lady stencil on the card I then stamped the shops.  These were then masked as well.  For my background I used the ink that was left on the poly bag after doing the background for the calendar challenge.  Ingenious or what?  After removing all the masks I placed the outer part of the stencil in place and used my stencil brushes to create the lady.  I used one of the house stamps to give her dress an abstract pattern.  I used coloured pencils on the shops and a fine liner to outline my lady and give her some curly hair - she looked a bit weird without it.
