A Wedding

Yesterday my lovely niece was married. She is an ecologist and a bit of an expert on Dragonflies. I knew straight away which stamps to use when I started making her a card. The Hobby Art dragonflies were coloured with zig cleancolor markers and I added a little gelly roll sparkle pen and glossy accents to the eyes. When the eyes were dry I painted over the dragonflies with glossy slap-it-on from Indigo Blu. The reason I went for the two products is that they have different levels of shine. The background was created with ink dusters and then stamped with hobby Art wildflowers and dotted with white and stardust gel pens.
Here is a close-up of those eyes and the detail of the wings.
And here are a few photos from the big day...


Thanks for looking and please leave some love on my mid month inspiration post from yesterday too!
(Anyone would think I was on holiday - two posts in two days, lol)

Such a beautiful card Sally, it makes a change from the more traditional wedding cards too with a bride and groom. Fantastic photos too, especially the wonderful shoes that they were wearing.
