December Wedding

Just a quick blog entry today. Have a bad headache and being too long on this computer will do it no good !!! I have been trying for about a week now to get a decent photograph of this card, but the weather is so grey, I just haven't managed it. This is the best I have been able to do. It is such a shame because it is so delicate and sparkly IRL. But it needs to go into the post tomorrow so this will have to be it.

I have used the stamp set A Bit of Happiness, which is a Level 1 Hostess set for the 2008/09 season. Colours used are Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom & Whisper White. The Blush Blossom was stamped over with the En Francais BG Stamp with VersaMark ink and the MR & MRS from the Basic Phrases set stamped with Cameo Coral

Once the panel had been water colored with Cameo Coral and Blush Blossom inks, I rubbed the VersaMark pad all over the panel then sprinkled with the Heat & Stick powder. Gently heated this up then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds over and reheated to make them stick. Then trimmed down the panel to the size I required. By doing this after applying the Dazzling Diamonds you make sure every bit of the panel is covered and all sparkly.

Anyway...better go....It is my turn to post a challenge tomorrow over at In Love With Stamping, so need to go and prepare for that. Nothing like leaving it until the last minute LOL. So there will also be a post tomorrow, be sure to come and have a look.

Bye for now...
