I have used 2 images together (love PNG files!!!) - Fisher Dad Set and the background from the Tropical Party Set. I have coloured it with Copics and chalks. The CS is Apricot from Bazzill and the DP is from Basic Grey. I found the sentiment online and just printed it out on my computer - I thought is was funny and fit the expression on the Dad's face!!

Incy Wincy Designs - I DO!

In honour of the Royal Wedding that took place last weekend, Incy Wincy Designs Challenge blog decided to have a special challenge this week. Our challenge for you is to make a WEDDING OR ENGAGEMENT card - or any project with that theme!

Here is my project using an image from our sponsor this week - Karen's Doodles. This image is called I DO! so it is very appropriate for this weeks challenge! Thanks to Karen's Doodles for letting the Design Team work with a few of your super images!

I coloured the image with Copics. I added glitter to her veil and flowers for a bit of bling. I wanted to keep the card fairly clean, to showcase the gorgeous image. Inside, it simply says "Congratulations". The pearls are from my stash! The CS is Black (SU) and the DP is Almost Amethyst (SU).
Have fun and good luck!!! I hope you'll join us this week!
