You can see the "also rans" here . . . . with my "camper van" on the left and my beetle on the right - now tell me you prefer one of these!!
The camper van and beetle (both stamps by Kanban) were both coloured using pro markers, the van using grey/green and ivory mostly and the beetle using magenta and red. I also stamped a Paper Artsy fern to act like a "hedge" on the camper van and my beautiful Penny Black Fantasy tree served a similar purpose on the beetle. I drew in an imaginary piece of road to "ground" my vehicles. The camper panel was then mounted on to stardream card in dark blue and pale green, the ribbon was from Michaels and the dufex sentiment was donated to me so source unknown. The beetle was mounted on to red (donated by Lauren - thanks Lauren) and then on to a camel colour and red organza ribbon (again from Michaels) looped at the top before adhering to silver mirri card. I hope you like both of the also rans . . .
Anyway, back to the scrap booking ...............
This is the second layout featuring the wedding of hubby's parents in April of 1941 and features the bride showing off the beautiful rear view of her wedding dress and also a couple of pictures of the happy couple, we both believe these photographs to have been taken at the home of the brides family in St. Paul's Road, Gloucester. I used a 12" x 12" of mottled pink paper as the base for my layout, cutting a slimmer white panel, using my fiskars fancy edge punch and then using distress inks in Spun Sugar and Victorian velvet before attaching the two smaller photographs and then adding seven glittered "water droplet" stones between the two. I used some self adhesive "faux lace" (from the Costco scrap booking kit) top to bottom down the centre of my large photo panel. I cut a piece of white card slightly larger than my photo and distressed it using Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, Aged Mahogany and Black Soot. Once the photo was stuck to this panel I then tied a bow of white organza ribbon across the corner before adhering it to my pink base card. I then used a couple more of the glittered water droplets in the centre of the lace design and there you have it.
Hope you like what I've been up to today and now, with the weather so nice and hubby at the field, making the most of it, I think it's time for a cup of coffee which I hope to enjoy in the garden.
Catch you all tomorrow peeps - have a lovely afternoon and evening
