Wedding !!!!

Hi Peeps just thought I would share my wedding save the dates and invites

Very simple just printed some tags off one of my Cd's not sure which one but its prob a Choc Baroque one
Bit of ribbon done ha ha Used PSP to enhance the text and flower (faux embossed)

This pic is of my 'sample' so it looks a bit tatty now ..... velum overlay and properly embossed text and flower .........did a cheque book style as the wedding isn't local I had lots of info I needed to share

Basically the front cover followed by card which matches the save the date .........then the invite its self ......followed by tear out RSVP, accommodation info, menu, and a little map

Not very crafty mainly done on the computer but Steve did very well embossing the flowers  seeing as his hands are like coal shovels ha ha

Be good

Hello Peeps

Hey Just thought I would bring you up to date a bit

David is loving Uni ......It seems I have a budding anthropologist on my hands, hes just at the end if his second year and is loving Lampeter, I'm so pleased he had a change of heart and went back into education, even if it took 2 yrs for him to decide ha ha

Still not got anything crafty properly unpacked ......... dug out a couple of canvases and some paints to have a bash at painting an abstract of three canvases (kind of one pic split in three if that makes sense) for the dining room but my mojo is still in a box some where,

The cats are loving the garden ........... its nice to see them so happy after the upset of the move, they really didn't like it and sulked for days but now seem to have forgiven me :)

Ive found a pic of something I had a bash at a while ago ....painting with bleach!!

 This is a Clarity Stamp stamped on to black card with stazon and then painted with bleach to wash out the colour........ I found the thicker bleach easier to work with ......... its a bit stinky but once dry its fine ........ it takes a few coats and its like working backwards as the more you apply the lighter it goes so keep that in mind if you need shaded / darker areas I just got the base colour as I wanted it,, then barely touched the card to achieve highlights .......also try the bleach on scraps first as some coloured card just doesn't bleach and some don't go white but light tones of the original. Have a go!

Be good
