Congrats on your special day

Hi and welcome to my post to announce the start of this week's ATSM challenge -

MAKE YOUR MARK

So any project where you use handmade marks, colouring, sewing, painting etc.
Here is my CAS card, sorry for the poor pic but trying to get a clear one of a card with shiny silver on is always a trial!



My son is off to quite a few weddings this year, friends from work and school, so wedding cards are in demand. I used this MB stamp I won last year and my Christmas pressie from aforementioned son, Prismacolor pencils. The layout is taken from the Paper Players and the colours from Card Concept.
The heart was stamped and embossed with silver before I coloured it with the pencils. It's my first time using these so I was unsure how it would turn out but I quite like the soft look. I used a variety of pink and pinky reds to build up the depth of the heart and a v pale pinky beige for the shadows on the blossoms. My white panel of linen effect card was inlaid into the silver linen effect frame before mounting on a white base card, the vellum banner cut and embossed with a sentiment in silver EP was laid across before adding the silver die cut Congrats and the fussy cut heart, the latter on pads.
So what will you make? Check out the rest of the team for more inspiration here and why not join in.
