Party Invites

Party Invites
Originally uploaded by Eekers!
Commissioned to make a few party invites and this is the result! Wanted to play with distress inks and resist technique for ages, but have just never got round to it. Both sets of stamps used were from Crafty Individuals, and I am glad I have finally done them some justice! Used Ranger distress inks in a few shades and added a little bling for the final touch.

Am annoyed my printer wont print on vellum so eventually I hand wrote the information, I usually dont like hand written greetings on card, but this worked out ok I think.

Very excited that want to use this image in one of their publications. No fee for it, but I will get credited and may even get a copy should my pic be included in the final publication. :)
