It's Wedding Season!

Good Day Inky People!

Did you miss me?  I was camping the past weekend at Big Falls and while there was supposed to be WiFi, apparently the whole Newfoundland WiFi camping system is down. 

Can you picture me in the truck with the computer, cell phone and booster and my Kindle?  The compter was to try to get on line, the cell phone and booster was to get tech support from my kids and the Kindle in case all of these failed (which they did)  I am able to post on Face book with the Kindle thank goodness.  I am on a 3G network.  I love technology but Things are NEVER easy!!!  So no posts for you!

But I am hoping they will get the bugs out and the next time I go there I will be able to post and check e-mail etc.  On the other hand I had a relaxing weekend.  Not a whole lot to do but read and play with fire! :O)

As the post says it's Wedding season and I have a lady in Alberta who contacted me about doing a hand made card for her!  Of course I was pleased to accept!  So this evening I  made this card for her.  The colors for the wedding are Purple and Black and I tried to incorporate these colors and still not make it too dark.  I think I nailed it!!   (I'm just sayin')

Have a look -

I used Fabulous Florets and did the Re-Inker Spread Technique.  I used Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant re-inkers to get this lush color.  This technique only works on Shimmer White card stock.  I used an aqua Painter to spread the color and of course I had to emboss the images in White embossing powder first. 

I kept the French Filigree background stamp even though it is retired because I like the swirl.  I embossed this with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I really love how it turned out.  I hope she likes it.

Here is a close up of the swirl and the flowers.  I used a lot of layers for this card but it was well worth it don't you think? 

Well gotta run and finish some more projects!  Have a great evening!

Feeling the love hugs!
