Lately I've been trying to make it a point to participate in challenges organized by other paper crafters. Melisa, fellow Angel Sister & friend has been hosting blog hops for awhile now and this is my first time playing. She challenged us to create something using the Blissfully Everafter stamp set from the Angel Company. I don't have this set but she was so sweet and RAK me some images. I really like this set! I hadn't really considered it before now but It's now on my ever growing wish list :)
I could not for the life of me get a good photograph or scan of the first card due to the light color of the patterned paper, but the flower's color is actually very close to the color of the patterned paper.
On the card base I stamped one of the swirls from TAC's Curls & Swirls stamp set using Versamagic Turquoise Gem ink. I inked the stamp and stamped first on a piece of scratch paper and then stamped again without re-inking the stamp, onto the card base.
I outlined the dress using a Copic marker (B00-Frost Blue). The white flower is a Bazzill Bitty Blossom and the bluish green one & white button is from Making Memories Noteworthy embellishment jar. I attached them using white scrappers floss & glue dots.
Below the wedding dress I stamped a sentiment from TAC's Everyday Events stamp set. Then I layered a couple of sheets of patterned paper from TAC's Gentle Beginnings paper pack.
My second card also features patterned paper from the Gentle Beginnings paper pack. I colored the images using Prismacolor colored pencils and Gamsol. The ribbon was in my stash, I'm not sure who the manufacturer is.
I left the inside of the card blank because the image really could be used for a variety of occasions... Wedding, Birthday, Mother's Day, Spring Greetings, Thinking of you, ect. I really love the versatility that this image provides.
For this card I went with a more traditional color scheme. I used a stamp from the Floral Dingbats stamp set, some B&W dotted sheer ribbon, and a nesties tag die. I colored the image using copic markers & Prismacolor colored pencils, and a glitter pen (for the brides bracelet although you probably can't tell).
Thanks for looking! Don't forget to check out the other wonderful creations...
