A Vintage Wedding

Hi! I'm here again!  thank you so much for stopping by! 

this is becoming so addictive! If I don't get my paper and markers fix a few times a week (ok... I have to take a few nights off!!!) I go craaazzzy!!!!! although finding the time is so difficult! and now my little darling is at home, sick with temperature and a very runny nose....  (but she's still full of energy??!??), so even harder! I just wait for her to go to bed and my crafting begins!

This time I bring you a Wedding card... I think it's the first wedding card I've put up since I started the blog! I tried AGAIN! to go for a vintage-look card....this time monochrome and in nude colours. I'm not sure if I can consider this sepia colouring? please let me know in the comments below, as I'm not sure if I've chosen the right markers for sepia colouring....  I used the one's I have, I'm slowly trying to build up my Promarker collection.

I used this stamp by Lili of the Valley called "Wedding Couple". It is one of my "abandoned" rubber stamps.... I haven't used it for so long! 

The papers I've used are non-branded. I also used my "Postcard" stamp by Papermania Urban Stamps, with brown ink.
I built up the layers over kraft card. 
I used a punched hearts border and lace across the card.

The Promarkers I used are:
Raw Sienna, Sandstone, Putty Mastic, Almond, and Blender Pen.
For the blonde hair I used: buttermilk and eggnog.

The corner stamp next to the image is from Tim Holtz Stampendous collection. 

I punched two butterflies (Martha Stewart punch) in Kraft card, and then I used the Postcard stamp with Versamark embossing ink, white embossing powder (Papermania foam white) and my heating tool to create the script embossing on the butterflies.

The Sentiment is my own, created with my laptop. I used one of my new Marianne Creatables tag dies for the label/tag shape.

All the papers, doily, image, hearts and sentiment are inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Tea dye and distressed with the Tim Holtz distresser tool.

The flowers, pearls and lace are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges (in no particular order...)

Quirky Crafts #2 - 3 B's (I chose Butterflies)
Brown Sugar #78 - Embossing (butterflies are wet embossed) 2nd entry)

I really hope you have enjoyed this card! don't forget to leave me some love and follow if you haven't done already. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!!! I'm now back to give my little girl some more cuddles!
Until next time!
