This wedding card was requested to be not pink, not fussy, and the person requesting had seen the black and white anniversary card that I had done for Matt and requested something similar. I am not sure if she will actually like this but we shall see. Sea being the ultimate hint. The groom I think I know or am almost sure I know from an earlier time in my life. He was then in the navy and has since then I think worked with me a while back in my current company. Therefore the paper colour choice and the top layer paper were not to difficult a choice. There is a nautical theme to it. No image was requested and just words. So I used my new fonts cd and created the topper and then using a technique learnt from Sue watermarked swirls onto the cream card and used my chalks to show them and to slightly in a way distress the card. I then created the strips with the same back ground blue with a wiggly victorian cut edge (water like again I suppose) The front of the card was followed on in the inside.
This is a birthday card for another work colleague. Again the request is simple and classy, no fuss and no image. (harder for me these days) but again using the new chalk techiques here is what I created and again this was followed through into the inside.I know that some of you Sam, will be pleased to see no pink and fluffy stuff. I did try keep to Sam's challenge of brown and green on my Saturday class with Sue, but the pack had already been put together so I tried my hardest on that one.
Thanks for looking
