One Wedding Dress – Spring Bride

extra brides 012

The following two cards using Stamp-it’s Elegant Bride 3207F were not in last months class. I only designed them after the class had finished upon gaining inspiration from the scrap paper left behind on the desktop. That’s often the case with me. Look at a few ink splotches and see all sorts of things, ha, ha. I hope they provide you with some inspiration too! They are the only cards with multiple stampings of the bride.

 

 

  1. Photocopy dictionary page (with appropriate wording) onto white reflex paper. Stamp bride in black Archival ink into centre, then again randomly around.
  2. Stamp bride again onto scrap of white card in black Archival ink. Cut her out. Colour in her bodice and bouquet with pencil colour of choice. Using a paintbrush, smear Glossy Accents over skirt and sprinkle crystal glitter over whilst wet. I concentrated the glitter more at the top of her skirt, petering out towards the skirt hem. Set aside to dry.  extra brides 016
  3. Stamp flourish (from Stampin’ Up) in black Archival where desired onto dictionary paper. Sponge Distress pads Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Evergreen Bough over paper with a sponging block until roughly covered. (*optional – tear along edge. I did this as I wanted to get rid of words at the bottom which I felt detracted from the ambiance of the card).
  4. Attach dictionary paper onto layer of aqua, then yellow cards and finally onto pink backing card.
  5. Glue now dry bride into place over image on main card. Attach diamantes to centre of flourishes.
  6. Cut out sizzix label shape in white card and stamp Penny Black Wedding Day 2002D wording into centre in black Archival ink. Sponge with complimentary Distress inks. Attach diamantes to decorate and magic mount into place on card.
