Bridal Shower Invites

I have been working very hard on my sisters bridal shower invites.  I want them to be perfect for her and she can be very picky. I found a great lake blue and cream paper, and a matching mum flower stamp that inspired me. I began sketching and made a couple changes to get the final product.

They are in the mail, I will post more photos of the finish project in my illustration gallery. You can see some of my first sketches in the sketch gallery.

No one could be more happier, for the ending of this project then my little puppy. She kept a close eye on me.(You can see her favorite spot on a chair in the next room) Every once and a while she required a play break.

This weekend I finally finished (all 85) and shipped them off. Thank goodness all the stamping, sketching and hand addressing is done, it was fun project.

Now back to her table numbers. :)

White Roses

Did a couple test sculptures of different types of roses. I had a white and light pink sculpey. I felt the white roses needed some “life” in them, and did some tests having more pink. I’m not excited about the way the pink & white roses turned out color wise with the sculpey.  I do adore the white, so perhaps a little dusting of paint we might have something.

Fuchsia Sculpey

I found this beautiful pre-colored fuchsia sculpey clay.  I was not quite sure what I would do with it. Still on the fence but I was attracted to the color.  I ended up using the clay to make a dozen beautiful fuchsia roses. Now they are waiting to be added to something…what that maybe. hmmm. I’ll keep as a surprise.
