I had a hard choice choosing which stamp to show you first as there are so many gorgeous images, all in the theme of weddings and babies. So wedding first I think!
All the Images & sentiments are from the new release (about from the small swirls on the edges of the card) and are great to mix and match. Don't you just love all those sentiments? They all come on 1 sheet of rubber and I loved how they all looked as they were so rather than pick just 1 sentiment I just stamped it all as one, onto acetate and added it over my dp which I didn't want to hide. Willow bride, the swing and Oakley groom are all seperate stamps but I just used masking technique to create my little scene. They have been coloured with Copics and then coat of twinkling H2O over her dress and his waistcoat for added shimmer. Here's a close up shot of the image.Can I just say that I must have subconsiously thought Oakley looked like hubby as I ended up colouring him in exactly the same outfit he wore on our wedding day - he even commented on it when I showed him LOL
I added the elegant dove in the corner as it looked a bit bare. Gave him a bit of texture by using white 'fluffy stuff' on him, rolled it out flat (bit messy!) before heating it with heat gun to give him his feather look. The charm on it qualifies it for this week's WoJ challenge :)
I also want to enter this into this week's 'Copic Creations #5 - clear/transparent things' as I've coloured Willow's veil so that it looks like you can still see bits of the swing and flowers behind it and also her dress sleeves are transparent so a hint of her arm can be seen through that too, close up below . .Here is another shot of the whole card, this captures the shimmer on their clothes better but not on the glorious dp (DCWV luxury stack, knew it'd come in handy one day!)
Sorry for the long post but it's a big card and lots on it! So back to the Candy I mentioned at the start. I have the handsome groom, Oakley up for grabs along with a few bits so if you would like to go in my draw to win him, see post right under this one and leave a comment there. If you would also like to try to win him a bride then please pop on over to my teamie, Camilla as she has a different gorgeous bride for candy and be sure to check out all her dreamy creations.
Right, I'm off to go see what all the rest of my talented DT teamies have come up with. See you tomorrow for another preview.
