To the Bride and Groom

Good Evening to you all in the land of blog
Today I get to show you some of my new stash, it does not matter how many times I say I must not buy any more - I still do..................

Another new delivery arrived at Grimsby Crafts as I was planning my card class, and even before it was out the box, I was delving into it.  I pulled out some lovely Wild Rose papers and this lovely bride and groom also by Wild Rose along with one of each other pack that arrived and a couple of more stamps, which I will show you over a period of time.  

Although I am currently in the middle of making quite a few Mother's Day cards, I just had to stop and play.  So here is what I created with these new items
The base paper is a pale grey and like I said above the top papers are by Wild Rose and this stack is Wedding Bells, such a lovely pack I was spoilt for choice for which papers to use on this card.  I eventually settle with the small blue swirl sheet with the doves in the corner and the cream and roses one both so pretty in their own rights.  I edged each layer with the pale grey and distressed all the edges.  I added some fabulous lace again from Grimsby Crafts around the circle.  The sentiment is MSE.

Here is the image
The image is two single polymer stamps layered so that the groom is behind the bride.  If you have not done this before it is quite easy.  I stamped both images onto large post it notes near to the sticky side.  I then cut out carefully each image.  I stamped the bride onto my copic paper and then placed her post it note over her. I then stamped him and also covered him with his post it.  I then created the background with distress inks and finally removed the post it notes and coloured the image in with copics.  I have used the Warm Greys, the Cool Greys, the Neutral Greys and the Tone Grey s for his suit.  A white gel pen has been used for highlights. I then distressed the image and image plate too, before layering up the card.

Although I am sort of addicted to flowers and bought some more gorgeous ones from the Hobby House today as there new order has finally arrived, I avoided placing them on this card as I wanted to show off the papers.
