Wedding Time!


The day has finally arrived! My college roommate is getting married tomorrow. She started dating her fiance right before we graduated 7 years ago! I am so very happy for them both.

On to the card... I absolutely loved Cindy's (starlitstudio) sposabella card that she posted way back in January. I think it is the epitome of elegance! I just had to CASE Cindy's layout for this card.

I first stamped hitchedafellabella with Palette Noir ink onto a scrap piece of a Fabriano Medioevalis card. Then I colored them in with my watercolor wonder crayons and an aquapainter. This is by far my favorite method of coloring the bellas! I couldn't leave well enough alone at that point, so I added a little sparkle to bella's tiara and waist band and fella's bow tie with a Sakura Stardust clear gelly roll pen. Then I added some shine to the roses with a Sakura clear gelly roll pen. Finally I used a black glaze pen on fella's shoes and the white souffle pen for their smiles. I then layered the happy couple onto a piece of brushed silver card stock.

The rest of the card came together in a snap! The card base is some sort of Bazzill white card stock that I bought years ago. It has a nice linen texture. On a side note, I'm so excited that Stampin' Up! will be carrying textured cardstock in the new catalog.

Anyway, I sent a smaller piece of whisper white cardstock through my cuttlebug using the d'vine swirl embossing folder. A piece of white organdy ribbon and silver cord finished the card perfectly!

This is too cute! I love it. :) I received my first Bella stamps about two weeks ago and have yet to take them out of their packages! Imagining the coloring is the problem I'm having when I look at them. I think I'll try the watercolor technique...you have inspired me! TFS
