Jurassic Love!

Good Afternoon Everyone and I hope Monday finds you all well and for those who are not too good, sending Hugs that you will feel better soon.
Many thanks for all the lovely comments on my last card, especially regarding my colouring.  I'm delighted to hear that you think I'm good at this, it give me great encouragement, but I see glaring mistakes when I look at my images, and I do struggle with skin, hair and shadows.  I look at the varous tutorials which are a great help, but again it all depends on the instructor's own preference as to what and how they use their markers/paints and pencils.  I would love to go to a colourist's workshop, but have never found any, especially close to home.

Anyway, my card today had a wonderfully coloured image but, not by me, here it is;
When I saw this super image I thought it would be just right for a wedding card for an archeologist Bride and her Groom as the title is Jurassic Love.
It's from TPS and it comes either coloured or just lined for you to colour youself, as you can see I chose coloured, the background paper is part of the set, I've matted it on to Adorable Scorable card and embosed the base card with Embossalicious Floral Frenzie Folder. Computer generated named sentiment and stamped sentiment is from Inkadinkado. MB Heart dies, Flowers from WO and The Hobby House, ribbon and pearls from my box, a little Glamour Dust for added sparkle.

Well my spell check ain't working so please forgive if some of my spelling is wrong.

As none connected to the happy couple to be I felt confident in posting this ahead of the big day.

That's all from me today, Iv'e a few bits and pieces to do be for I go off to choral practise, this is our last one before our Canadian guests arrive.
Bye for now,  Kate x

oh Kate - this card is wonderful and so perfect for the recipients - they will have a chortle or two over those dancing dinos I think! I know what you mean about colouring - the biggest help I've found is the crafters companion DVD - with the lady with the tight curly hair - she's doing spectrum noirs - but the principles are the same whichever pens you choose to use. I've not watched much - and I'm sure I could improve my hair but I think my blending has imrpoved since watching that and would recommend you having a look! Hugs rachel xx

Oh how fun! I just adore dinosaurs for many themes, but I'd never thought of them for a wedding. I love that it is so different from most wedding cards and will surely be very memorable to the lucky couple that receives it.

Best crafty wishes!
