My First Faux Book

I decided to make a wedding card for someone I know who gets married in a few weeks. I have seen faux books on blogs before and in Craft Stamper but never tried making one. Here is my first attempt.

The image is LOTV and the beautiful papers are Basic Grey Capella. The lighting wasn't very great, I'm afraid the pics could be better. I have coloured the image with Promarkers and added some Stickles to the edges of her dress. The heart stamp is from February Craft Stamper. Here's a look inside

and a wee side view

The first of 2012

Hurrah I have made a card!! I decided to attempt colouring an image just using greys. I have seen a few of my blogging buddies do this and really like the effect. This sweetie is from Saturated Canary, I love Krista's images.  The papers are from a Joanna Sheen CD I have and I coloured the lace and the edges of the papers with Distress Ink. The sentiment is from SU!
