Guest Designing for DYSU #58

Thursday, February 9, 2012

I'm just beyond thrilled to be guest designing, this week, with the talented, Do You Stack Up? Design Team, for Challenge #58: Love.
I was given a sweet, little, bride and groom, digital image, from Birdie Brown Stamps, to work with.  Thank you, Torico!  And you really must stop by her blog to see how these darling images SHOULD be colored.  LOL!  Anyway, here's what I came up with.
I started this card by printing the image onto Whisper White cardstock and coloring it in with Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, and Real Red inks and a blender pen.  I also added a touch of glitter to the bride's veil, before adhering it to the Whisper White, cardstock, card face.
I then cut a heart, using my Cricut, from the red, polka dot, patterned paper; adhered a strip of vellum, stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "Congratulations to the happy couple" sentiment, to its bottom center; backed it with piece of clear cardstock; machine stitched, with white-threaded, straight stitches, around its edges, as well as the edges of the Cricut-cut heart; and backed it with foam tape.
A small handful of clear and red, confetti hearts were then tossed over the image, before I adhered the prepped, sentiment panel over it, to complete the look.
Please be sure to pop by the challenge link above to see what the team has whipped up just for your viewing pleasure, as well as to find out what you're playing for this week.  Thank you so much for having me, Alison, Joan, and your whole, motley crew!  And thanks, to you all, for stopping by!  Be blessed!
