Pre Wedding card and homework.....

My goodness me! tehheee I have been married 6 months! Where does the time go...... anyway......before I digress to much this card is being sent as a with regret....I thought about all the different ways to make a with regret card but just could not find a way to.....So after much thought I decided to make it as a pre Wedding card instead...... Ps,,, Forgot to say the metal looking heart is triple embossing and I have stamped into it with a Penny black script stamp.



Found some Challenges to play..........

Paper Play - Layer it up
Southern Girls - Dry embossing
Charisma Cardz - Valentine/love
Simply Create - Give your heart away
Crafty Catz - Flowers
Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage Valentine
Crazy 4 Challenges - Vintage or Shabby Chic

Now on to last weeks homework! we were asked to draw in pencil a tree that we could see from our house so we could observe the shadows and shading.... I drew this...

The small tree on the right is my small but lovely plum tree in my back garden,
The one on the left is on the main road I can see it from my patio window.

Here is my nearly finished painting
Photobucket

what do ya think?

    My trees still look like lollipops and always will. My people are still stick figures, not straight,and dont really ressemble anything. AND my spelling suks lol.Well done.Just gorgeous, hope you put it up for auction on the blog, I'll be there.

  3. Hi Samantha, your card is fabulous as are your sketches and your "almost" finished painting. Your talent is quite apparent and we are so happy you joined us this week at SCH's Vintage Valentine challenge. I love the softness of your card, the metal heart adds just the right amount of "hard" to draw the eye!! Please join us again next week!!
