Oops, I've been awful about updating again. At least it wasn't quite as long.
Today's card is an engagement card for one of the sales reps I work with. He met this lady in June and they are engaged and getting married... awfully fast, but he is as giddy as a school boy. I wish them all the best!
Honestly, I had something more formal and weddingish in my head when I went into the stamp area. Just goes to show that you never know what you are going to end up with as part of the creative process. I dug out one of my old SU sets. The image is colored with copics, go figure. I colored over the sand with a Sakura stardust pen and then added a little smooch spritz to simulate the sun on the sand. I am awful with sun rise and sun set, etc... so I took the easy way out and just sponged the background in blue, pink and yellow. I decided to add a little distress ink to the edges. Since I am not proficient, I went with my lightest color, Antique Linen. As I was sponging, I used a scrap piece of orange cardstock that was lying around. I really liked the way it looked with the image, so I went with it! SHOCKING!! I really didn't intend to use those colors, but if it works, it works! I really ended up liking this color combo. I wanted to add more embellishments, but I figure since this is going to the male of the couple, I would leave it as it was.
