Beautiful Birds

When I received the Nouveau Lovebirds stamps, I was curious to see if I could go
with a wedding theme.
I stamped with Versamark and embossed with gold powder. I recently had a play with some Coloursoft Pencils and with a little left over birthday money I invested in  a small set.
For the birds and trees I quickly learned that it was best to keep the pencils sharp. Glenda is an expert when colouring with pencils and I certainly enjoyed taking time colouring the image.
I chose to mount the birds on colours from the pencil work. 
The Ivy Corners from the Wedding Belle and the sentiment were stamped with green ink.
I have a friend getting married in the summer so this card is going in the box of cards ready for their big day.
Many thanks for visiting

This works so well as a wedding card Debbie. The colour soft pencils were a great investment this looks great coloured with them.

The combination of gold embossing with pencil colouring is particularly apt for the theme & I absolutely love your framing of the image with those corners. Your matting onto the same colours as your pencil work helps to really bring out the colours. The white layers throughout coupled with the gold makes this a very elegant card indeed - perfect for a happy couple.
