Black, White and Grey


I am very much over valentines and it's not even here yet, lol, but while we're on the love theme, I thought I'd go for a wedding card, after all, what says love more than deciding to spend the rest of your life with someone!

I used paper from Authentique's Fresh collection layered on black card from papermill direct. Used my nesties to cut and emboss the image from Pollycraft, before colouring it with promarkers: black, slate, cool grey 4, cool grey 3, shale, caramel, sandstone, gold, mustard, buttercup, vanilla, blush, almond and soft peach.

The sentiment is from stampin' up and I embellished with a few pearls, some twine and a heart charm.
