Just Inklined to Blog Hop!

Wooo - today is my first hop as a Guest Designer for Just Inklined and I'm very excited.  If you've arrived here from Debbie's blog, then you're on the right track.  If not, hope back to Toni's blog and start from the beginning, because you won't want to miss any of my Teamies' wonderful samples. 

Our theme this month is Buttons and Bows and we've been lucky enough to have beautiful ribbons and buttons from Fantastic Ribbons to use in our projects.

So, without futher ado, please welcome the happy couple! (with sincere apologies for the awful photography - not good without natural light, methinks!)

Papers: Digital downloads from Pink Petticoat, 'Vintage Rose' collection

Other: Ribbon and buttons from Fantastic Ribbons

So, dear old Flossie and Sylas are celebrating what must be (or seem like!) their 100th wedding anniversary!!! Flossie, of course, is a loose woman and is just waiting until she can slip outside to meet her fancy man, Albert.  Sylas is just waiting for Flossie to disappear so that he can ogle the young nurses and get plastered on beer.  Aah, life's sweet pleasures. 

Seriously, though, isn't this the most delightful anniversary image? Perfect when you need to send something a little humorous to the happy couple.  I love it!

I love these papers too - they give just the right impression of faded wallpaper, which will have been on Flossie and Sylas's walls for many years, I don't doubt. I coloured up this happy pair with my Copics before adding some paper piecing to Flossie's dress and hat band and to Sylas's blanket.  Then I added shading with my Prismas, as always. 

So, hop away, dear Crafty Bloglanders, and enjoy the fun.  Don't forget to leave some love on the way - we always enjoy getting your comments.  And if you haven't tried a Just Inklined image yet, why not pick up a couple at the end of the hop and enter next month's GDT call

Just in case you should get lost on the way, the full hop order is:

Toni, Mina, Karen, Lydia, Debbie, Peri (that's me), Cathy and Jak

Happy crafting.
