Art Challange: FADED (Handfastinging announcement)

I really enjoy art challenges (yes the valentine one is coming..LOL)

so here is one I thought I would keep an eye on:

This weeks theme is FADED, I have done other faded images but I am really loving this one which is actually the announcement to Alex and My Handfasting.  I loved the original photo and the colors were amazing, I wanted to share the close up on the hands and use it twice for the inside and outside of the announcement.  I actually love the faded effect because the colors are intact but misty and softer.

When we send out the invite the photo we include will be the original (at the bottom of the post)

The faded inside of the announcement (URL at bottom obscured)
