Oh So Fuchsia

I was asked to make some wedding invitations. The requirements were fuchsia, sparkly and modern and this is what I came up with.  It is inspired by an example on the Pink Petticoat website. 

This was my first go with Promarkers and my first go with a Fiskars border punch too and also my first go with DecoArt Gamour Dust (Crystal) that I used for the wedding dress though I have not discovered how to photograph better as it is so sparkly, you have to see it to believe it.  On and another first I must mention, I used Satin Finish Printer paper by Crafter's Companion as I wanted to use something I hoped would be good quality.  Oh my, it was outstanding.  Not only did it print the background papers beautifully it felt gorgeous too.  I was really pleased with that because it adds a little something when the guests take the invite from the envelope.

I had such a lot of fun.
