The kiss


I'm so pleased with the way this card turned out.It This digi image from Sassy Studios has to be one of the most difficult I have ever coloured. Some of the parts are so small, particularly where the couple meet at the top that the colouring was a challenge in itself. I showed the finished card to my husband, who though he appreciates my cards, usually says that's nice, very good or something like that. However he said this one was beautiful, so that's praise indeed. Photos of tall cards don't show all the details so well so please click on the image for a larger version.

I've just recently fallen in love with spacers and charms and bought some new ones from Hobby House, which I've used here.

Your husband is right this is beautiful! The attention to detail on your colouring is amazing. It must have taken some time to colour this up. I love the reds in her dress! Way to go on challenging yourself to something with this image!
