Phantom Wedding request

Hello my crafty friends I hope you’re all well and this post finds you fine and dandy. We have had a glorious week here although at the time of writing this it has started to rain. I hope it clears by tomorrow as I wanted to get my washing out and drying, oh well.

Anyway I have a card for you today that I made just over a week ago. I had a lady on facebook send me a message asking if I could make a card for her as she had same sex wedding coming up and was looking for an appropriate card for the couple as they were into the phantom of the opera. I said I have a look and see what I could come up with. To be honest in my head I was screaming how am going to do this but then ideas started to pop into my head.

The card is A5 in size and I have gone for a black and white look with a pop of red for a striking effect

I mirrored the image and overlapped it to make it look sort of entwined if you know what I mean. I used a sketch from Jules at the papers are from various places. All have been distressed and inked 

I made the flowers from watercolour paper that I coloured using distress inks and added 3 small gems to the greeting. I finished the card with an insert to match 

Have a great weekend and I will see you soon


Happy Crafting

A WONDERFUL card and great inspiration from you. Very original and everything about it is GREAT.

Sorry I've been AWOL, but doing lots of things has made comments take a backseat, I have caught up with you though and loved ALL your cards, who couldn't?
Hope all is well with you
