Gone fishing

This like like a blast from the past, I had seen this sketch somewhere in my files and when I looked up the link it was from Taylored Expressions back in April 2009.

I made this for my Brother in Law who is always off fishing, sometimes in dams where the only thing you can see is dead trees and water, relying on a gps to get him back home. I used the embossing folder to give the feeling of sticks all around. I hope he manages to catch something and have lots of fun.

Engagement congratulations

This Saturday I am going to an engagement party, it is themed black and white. I used MFT Wednesday sketch for my layout inspiration, and flipped it on its side. I coloured the "a'la mode" image with copics and cut it out with nestabilities. The designer paper was matted with black on white and then black on white base card, with a little bling on the corners. After assembling the card I used kindy glitz to add bling to the diamond.
I also used the mft die to make the scallops at the base.

Paper: Designer paper - Cre8tiv Silhouette stack, white & black card
Other: francheville ribbon, flower, nestabilities oval & scallop, rhinestone brad, small rhinestones , kindy glitz
