Tellens place...dt piece and news

It's wednesday and we have a new challenge for you at TELLENS PLACE..... can you guess what it is from my card?
The challenge is ............ WEDDINGS/ GOING TO THE CHAPEL.
I thought a 'skelly-bride' would be just a little different.......... i used one of Markus' .........( hes the brilliant artist who does all of TELLENS PLACE'S images) skulls.... printed it out twice so i could layer it up to make it more dimentional........ (during the next few weeks i'll show you how....but more of that later) i coloured my images with water colours and ink.
I used very distressed black netting for the vail... and a velveteen crown with pearls to hide where i stuck the net to the image.
I placed it onto a distressed black pearlized oval then onto my card that i'd used a black patterned dp that i'd distressed also..... and a bit of black lace.
The sentiment oval i blackened.... but you can just about see that it says... LOVE FOREVER.
Thats about it...... now who do i send it too?
The NEWS i refered to in my post is that TELLENS PLACE CHALLENGES will be having a break for summer but TERRY and i shall be doing stuff every week on the blog so you still need to come and see us..... i have some things to show you..... how to mask using digis/ real rubber stamps.... how to make black..... ok... any colour roses..... how to decoupage the skull image above and some more things i'm working on..... TERRY has tons of stuff up her sleeve, including PRIZES.... please PLEASE come and join us during the summer.... this is something new to me and i hope it'll be fun and you'll have lots of chances to be involved and do stuff with us.
Please come and play with us...... WEDDINGS dont have to be white fru-fru you know!
This card was made for the challenge at STAMPINSANITY as well, i used their recipe.... black paper, a skull, and pearls.... i was sure when i saw this challenge last thursday it was made just for me!!!!
Thanks for visiting.... and if you read all of this post you need a nice strong cuppa by now.... off you go but please go and check out TELLENS PLACE.
Love lynx
