Afterwards we tried distressing with Tim Holtz Distress inks - I have never used these before but had always wanted to try and now I am hooked. I have just been online and bought some more after my little shop on the day and am going to use the technique on my Brother and his fiancees wedding invitations. Here is the card I made.
This is the front of the card - I wish I had written down the name of this stamp it is gorgoeus (I remember it was expensive but thats all lol)
This is the first page - I used a stamp that Brenda brought in I love it, It is a penny black one - think I will have to try and get this one it is brilliant. This page was spritzed with glimmer mist. Yet another product which I now NEED :)
And this is the final page where the message can be written - I am giving this card to an old work friend who wanted a card made for a wedding. I think this will suit.
This is a close up of the roses. I made these using a flower punch. You can find the tutorial on Brenda from Floral Fantasies blog I am so chuffed with these I sm going to be making them all the time now.
I would like to say thank you to Brenda and Chris for their patience with my millions of questions (that are still coming lol) and to all of the ladies for making me feel so welcome. I hope we can all meet again soon.
