365 x 2

Time for a bit of a catch up over at 365 Cards after a wonderful day yesterday at the wedding of my son Barney and his beautiful fiancee Elen. I only took a few terrible snapshots as my camera is so old and I had to do them from wherever I was sitting at the time. So I will show some better ones when I get the official photographer ones.
So on with what I have been catching up with
Day 180 - Going Vintage, so a vintage image needed here
Day 181 - White Space, a given sketch where only the black portions could be decorated however we want

The vintage image is from a misc. pictorial rubber stamp. Which led to me getting out my Anna Griffin vintage looking paper and some lace. I finished off with some glittery stickers from my stash adding a little piece of pink ribbon and a word sticker by Kay & Co.

I thought border stamps when I saw the sketch and dug out these ancient SU stamps (1998) which I inked up wuth Versafine Onyx black and coloured with PM's and Copics, I had fun doing this as colouring always takes me back to my childhgood.
The lettering was from some oddment of rub-ons and a few dots with a pen. I smooshed round the edges of the card pieces with Adirondack 'Meadow'

Jenny, I'm glad the wedding went well, and can't wait to see your pictures! I'll bet it was beautiful! I can't believe you did these challenges with a wedding going on this week! I still think you need a super trooper award or something! Great job!
