To The Happy Couple

Ok so here is an image I coloured forever and a day ago! I love colouring so much, but today we are having a making session! its brilliant, instead of the table being covered in pens and scraps for colouring on, it covered in gems and pearls and card of so many different colours!!!  

Its a bit like a dream come true for me! I can colour so easily when I have the kids as I can stop and start, but to make a full card when they are about.... NO WAY!!!! hence why I have a box of coloured images, I hope that tonight Mark may want to play the guitar and I can get some more made, seem to be on a roll of getting things done!  All week the table has been covered in everything, to the point that the kids cant even eat dinner there, so trays have been on laps! I haven't had time to tidy up with having Amelia home all week and the weather has been horrid!  

 Ohhh i'm so happy today! Were off out shortly to see a friend and her baby! I know i'm going to be so broody later! Although we need a bigger house and I would like Nancy to be sleeping through the night, she used to be a dream baby, but now she is a nightmare! She wont sleep at night, I have tried cutting naps in the day but she gets worse! Oh well, things can only get better! 

Onto my card, I have used the lovely image 'loving bridal couple'. I felt it could be for a weeding, but it would be a very low key wedding so I wanted to try and 'fuss' it up a bit, it could also be for an engagement, or just a loved up couple! 

The image was coloured with my pro-markers, I will have to edit this post later to put the colours down, I rounded the corners off of the image and used a sponge to put the silver on.  The roses were all white to start with, i used my pro-markers to bleed into the flowers to colour them.  The pearl flourish was done using my bazzill template and 3mm pearls.  The lace is stuck down the side with double sided tape.  

Here you can see the flowers a bit closer, I have also added some pink, just to jazz it up a bit! I stuck all the flowers down using silicone as I can 'jab' the stems in before it sets! 

Well I hope you like it, I know this is one that I have enjoyed making!
