Dodgy Engagement card

Aaarrgh a dreaded love themed card!  I was asked to make an Engagement card as a quick order, so I used these stamps that I won ages ago from CC Designs but have never inked up.  (sorry, but I have issues with faces with no mouths!)

If I had time I would remake this card ... my colouring on this is absolutely pants and their positioning isn't right either.  I think I should have stamped the groom to the left instead of to the right of his intended ... at the minute their body language doesn't bode well for a happy relationship LOL

Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss and glitter added to her diamond ring.  Silver peeloffs from stash.  Oldie embossing folder from Ellison.

  1. You're just too heard on yourself, Lynne. I understand your issue with faces with no mouths. I have that same issue and refuse to buy those stamps. I think your card is quite pretty. The little changes you mentioned may have made it better, but it's still SO much better than any mass-produced card from a store!

  2. Oh now they are so sweet Lynne.

  3. I did chuckle about the chances of their relationship but I thought it all looks fabulous.

  4. Lovely card Lynne. I am not too keen on the faceless images myself :o)

  5. This card is adorable. The people who receive it won't even notice what you think are flaws. We always judge ourselves the harshest. And if they're positioned in the wrong way, just think of it as a mirror image -- then they would be the right way!

  6. love your coloring of the sweet image - thanks for joining us at ATSM this week

  7. Fabulous card Lynne they make such a sweet couple, love the colours, super make.
