Medallion Wedding

Hello,
I hope you are all enjoying not having to do the school run! I am certainly enjoying the rest from it!
So, I was asked to make a wedding card for a friend who's sister is getting married soon, now I just love the Medallion (p 60) anyway, but it just sooo perfect for wedding cards.



I used Mellow Moss as a base colour on some pearlescent card from my stash, as this was a similar colour to the bridesmaid dresses. Now unfortunately I didn't have the Mellow Moss stamp pad or even the spot, just the pen and re-inker so I was a bit worried how I would be able to huff all over such a large stamp if I used the pen and then I had an idea! (it's OK I was sitting down, lol) I put a couple of drops of the re-inker (p72 & 73) into a lid from some SU! buttons and added a couple of drops of white shimmer paint (mini p 21), I then used a sponge dauber to apply the paint directly to the stamp, hey presto! the colour you need without the pad, I was trilled with the results it gave me too,
Here is the inside with a slightly more vintage look, ie: not perfect, on purpose I hasten to add! sentiment from a sab set, no longer available,
And here is the arty angle, ribbon is Kraft taffeta (p 87) topped with a yummy Filigree brad (p 85) in the centre of which is a gem brad (p 86)
Well, that's all from me today, don't forget to let me know what you think :-) and if you need a mini catalogue email me sarah-janerae@sky.com and I will pop one in the post to you asap.
I have another busy day ahead, getting the house ready for the builders :-)
Enjoy your day too,
Hugs Sarah-Jane xxx
