A few months ago, I made this card for a wedding in September, and forgot
to post it on my blog, so here it is now. The lovely couple are Veronica and
Antonio, hence the 'V' and 'A'.
I took the photos on 2 consecutive days, and although the weather was the same both
days, I can't believe how different the colours are. The true colours are closer to the
ones below. I used my favourite method of cutting my rose petals and leaves from
parchment, or vellum, then handpainting them with dye inks before shaping them.
It is a very time-consuming process, but the end result is quite satisfying.
A closer look at the roses on the left...
and on the right. These smaller roses were cut with a combination of
Cheery Lynn dies, and Carl punches.

This is just a short post tonight as it is after 1 a.m., and very unseasonably cold. I have had to keep my computer shutdown all day, because we have had multiple electrical storms, and torrential rain. We have just had a brief break from the storms, but unfortunately there is another brewing, and each crash if thunder is getting closer, so I had better bid you all "good night", and shut-down yet again.
