"Lovey Dovey" at FSC

This fortnight we are all in LOVE!!!

That's right, we have the lovey-dovey thing going on at FSC.
This is open to animals in pairs, first love, bridal and romance...
whatever you interpret lovey dovey stuff to be.

For this challenge I have decided on a bridal card.
The idea that I had was to have a plain-ish style 
but with some technique involved.
I think that wedding cards should be stylish and not over-done, but that's me...kind of classic (ummm, the card that is, not me lol)


For this card, the top layer is all in one layer.
Some of you may have heard of the 'out-of-the-box' technique,
well, this card is kind of the reverse 
so I'm calling it the 'in-the-box' technique.

It uses a heart die behind which I have put some card that has been coloured with re-inkers (Wendy Vecchi style).

On the front I have stamped, coloured with Distress Inks and used stencils and negative stencilling (is that a technique???)

And, of course, there's a little doodling to finish it off!

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you like my card.
