Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 147 - Sketch

Hello Everyone

I hope you are all having a fab week.

I'm sorry I haven't been able to pop and see you all yet as my internet and phone lines have been down - apparently due to a lightning strike!

But I'm back up and running - just - so I will be across to see you all soon - thank you for your lovely comments.

Well, it's Saturday again so that can only mean one thing for this week's Totally Gorjuss challenge - a sketch - yay - and here it is:

Remember you can play with the sketch, (I have change the oval to a circle), mirror it, turn it upside-down etc; as long as we can see that the sketch is there somewhere then you are in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in the fabulous Joanna Sheen store, (don't forget Joanna does free P&P!).

Here is the card I made:

I was asked to make a wedding card for a friend and the colours of the wedding are ivory, cream and green - so pretty and quite unusual I thought.

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Mayzy Art - Lovely and Dashing
Digi Papers:  Whimsy Stamps - Michele R Designs - Peony Garden
Flowers & Leaves:  Wild Orchid Crafts
Heart Hat Pins & Pearls:  The Hobby House

The image has been coloured with Copics, Flexmarker and Promarker:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (Cheeks)
Eyes:  E15 E13
Bride's Hair:  E55 E53 E51 E50
Groom's Hair:  E35 E33 E31
Suit:  T7 T6 T5 T4
Waistcoat:  Champagne (Flexmarker) / Ivory (Promarker)
Tie:  G24 G12
Flowers:  Champagne (Flexmarker) / Ivory (Promarker)
Foliage:  G28 G46 G21

I have outlined the image and edged the papers with Bundled Sage Distress Ink

I will try not to bore you too much but there are some more pictures to come .....

Here is a picture of the inside cover of the card which details and Bride & Groom's names, date and venue for their wedding:

I would like to thank the lovely Bev Rochester for this idea - it really makes the card so special.

Here is the inside of the card where I have duplicated the front layout:

And finally, I wanted to show you a picture of the back of my card which my teamie Samantha did something similar on one of her cards to use up the scraps and I did tell her that I would 'steal' her idea - which I have ;o) and here it is:

Phew - and that's it - I hope you managed to get through it all!

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Take care

This is a lovely wedding card! You've used such pretty papers, perfect for the occasion, and a great image. I love how you've decorated the inside and backside too. A clever idea to include the names and wedding information - makes the card so much more personal.

Beautiful Hazel! I love the details inside the card too :) Very sweet! The image is so fun, I really love your colour combo too, it's different from the usual pinks and silvers for wedding cards, it works so well!

Do you mind me asking - where did you get your personalised stamp for the back of your card?

This is lovely Hazel, it isn't the sort of image I would buy and yet I can see now that I would have been wrong. It looks absolutely wonderful coloured as you have done. An absolutely great card and I lobve the way you have used the papers in different formats thoughout the card. Love the sentiment as well.
