Two Lives, one Beautiful future

I decided to use a stamp from Stamping Bella but only the top half. When stamped fully you can see its a wedding card, but using only the top half it can be an Engagement card.

I decided that was what I would do. I actually stamped and coloured four different versions. This blue/green, a brown, a red and a gold. One each I added glue to the dress and poured on glitter. Glitter from Martha Stewart, I love it as its quite fine and wonderful colours.

They all look wonderful but of course today I have just used the blue/green. I added a bit of glitter to the flowers swell by drawing some of the outlines with a pink glitter pen. Cut the white and the green layers with a die, added some fun foam to the back for dimension. 

Went looking for Engagement sentiment stamps and found that I only had one and it has disappeared. The Borrowers have borrowed it and will return it at some stage, just not sure when.

So I have NO, NADA, NIL, NONE Engagement Sentiments. I used one from a Wedding set
"Two lives, ONE Beautiful Future as I felt it could be an Engagement sentiment. I was going to add a die cut 'Congratulations but it was too wide and the Congrats too big and I must start planning my cards better.

Nothing is nicer than a beautiful bluey/green (teal!!)

Thanks for coming to Visit and I hope you come again soon.

Hi Aileen . . . been having a nose through your blog and see I've missed a whole lot of beautiful work. Will leave you some comments as I go through.

I think the sentiment you used looks WONDERFUL and the colouring is sublime.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
