Last ATC Swap ...

... with Dawn. Yes, our 6 month ATC swap is already completed. I cannot believe it! It was really great fun and I will miss it ... Dawn is such a lovely and talented lady, her challenges took me not only right out of my comfortzone but they also allowed me to experiment and to explore new techniques ... thank you so much for giving me the chance to swap with you. This month's theme was: Wedding
Always & Forever
I absolutely love this vintage image from Magic Moonlight Free Images. It is so sweet .... I simply printed it on white slightly textured card. The words and little hearts are stamped with Elzybells stamps and VersaColor ink. Around the edges I used velvet and decorative ribbons which were embellished with pearls.
The little fan in the corner is crepe paper which I inked up with Ancient Page ink, and then stamped the same words onto the crepe paper as are on the image.
I first stamped the background with stamps from Heindesign and Elzybells Hybrid ink ... and then layered it with a serviette using Decopatch glue. You cannot quite see it in the photo ... the background is very shiny. To complement the scene a wedding cake was needed (stamped, cut and coloured) and a little bit of ribbon. The edges are covered with Stickles Old Gold.
I am not so sure what the man in the moon is up to but he is definitely not allowed to disturb the young couple (lol) ... The image from the Graphics Fairy is printed on Basic Grey paper which I slightly distressed around the edges using Ranger Distress and Ancient Page ink. Door (Lavinia) and lock are stamped whereby the little sign has been cut and mounted. The little stars give some pinky bling. Have a wonderful long weekend, Petra.

They are all lovely Petra!! I never realized how sneaky that Man in the Moon image looked before, it does look like he's up to something. Good thing you put that Do Not Disturb sign up!! Thank you so much for linking this up to Brag Monday.
