Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 28

It's another new challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and for this one we have been given a Lady Ga Ga video for the song Bad Romance to use as inspiration.

There are so many different scenes with colour choices but what particularly stuck out for me were the bold red with the stark contrast of white.

I attended the wedding on Saturday of Melissa & Mike Hine and wanted to make a wedding card, fortunately for me their wedding colours were the same so it was a perfect match for the challenge too.

I started off with a base of a marbled red A4 card with a layer of white card which has been embossed with a hearts embossing folder from Crafts Too.

The stamped image is a freebie from a recent magazine which I stamped out 4 times and cut different layers from it. I mounted them onto 3d foam to decoupage and added glitter and colour with Promarkers accordingly. I added personalised colour for the recipients to make it more personal. I used my Nestabilities to cut layers for matting and added lots of stickles glue and gems to bling it up, again inspired by the video.

The spotty red ribbon with the white lace is one from my collecton, I thought it would look a bit like a garter and then I made a lace rose which I am really pleased with how that turned it, it added so much texture to it and I will definitely have a go at using it more.

Finally I added so die cut lettering from the Sizzlits Curlie Gurlie alphabet to represent the names of the Bride and Groom.

We've got a great sponsor for this challenge of Susie Sugar and she is offering a selection of die cuts to the winner of the challenge so it would be great to see lots of Haus of Ga Ga inspired cards and i look forward to seeing them if you enter our challenge this fortnight.

Prize approx £10 worth of die cuts, photo shows a selection of them
