Two Grooms

A friend asked me if I could create a card for a civil partnership/wedding she is attending soon.

So my first challenge was to find an image of two grooms, after a couple of hours scouring the internet with no results (a little surprising in this day and age!).  I had a look through all the digi's I already have and found an image from Sureya on Diviant Art, that I thought would be suitable.

I opened the image in word then duplicated it and flipped it, so I had two identical images, kind of looking at each other and thought it would pass as a wedding image - I hope you agree.  I then added the sentiment.

The image is coloured with pro markers then cut with Spellbinders Grand Ovals and matted onto a large Oval.

The backing paper is by 1st Edition - Up Up & Away.

These little fellas were a joy to colour and I am really pleased with the end result.

The challenges I would like to enter are:

Addicted to Stamps - Make your Mark
Fashionista Challenge - Wedding
Bloggers Challenge - Wedding
Here come the Boys - Masculine
365 Cards - Unconventional Wedding

  2. Julie, this is a fabulous card, and I love that it is made especially for such a unique wedding. The grooms will enjoy how customized it is - your shading and choice of colors look amazing, too.
