Sweet Stampin' Design Team Card - Wedding/Anniversary/Love

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team Challenge card with you. Our lovey dovey theme this week is 'Wedding/Anniversary/Love' and after checking my hundreds of stamps and digi stamps collection I found this gorgeous one from All Dressed Up (ADU). She's called 'The Gorgeous Bride' and was actually part of a set given as a magazine wedding freebie a year or so back, I just think she's beautiful. You can buy her individually and other bridal images from ADU themselves (click the link in the ingredient section).  I used my pencils to colour her in with and just added a touch of glitter to her flowers.

Don't forgot to enter our challenge you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize! 

 Here's What I Did
I matted a 5" x 5" white card base with a piece of patterned paper that I'd die cut with a pieced holes die on the inside cut line.  I then printed my digi stamp directly copier paper (for a mask), and onto colouring card stock and die cut it into an oval along with a pink mat. I coloured the image in with pencils and some blending solution.

Next I cut out the image I printed onto copier paper and glued it in place over the coloured in image to mask it - I used a removable tape pen but you could use a post-it note. Using pale coloured inks I stamped random splatters around the bride, when dry I removed the mask and attached it to the mat and to the card front using foam tape.

To complete the card I added a few pearls, a touch of glitter and some die cut flowers and leaves in complimentary papers at the top right.

Janine, I just LOVE this gorgeous card hunny. It's such an elegant image and the combo of beautiful papers, lovely oval die shape and those fabby blooms with their pretty pearl centres makes this a really special card. I love EVERYTHING about it hun. Your colouring is flawless, the background around her so pretty, (it looks like confetti!). It's sure to be a treasured keepsake! Sending big hugs and wishes for a happy day. I hope you're feeling a wee bit better and the docs are started to sort things out for you. Wends xoxo
