Love

I am in love with this card!  I don't know if you are really supposed to say that or not, but I just do!  It is for a young friend's bridal shower.  I created the "patterned paper" with a script sentiment stamp and a damask stamp that I stamped off on scrap paper before stamping it on the panel.  

Here is a close up of this gorgeous image.  I was at a loss as to how to "color" the veil part since I knew it should look different than the unveiled part of the image.  Then I had the genius idea to use vellum.  I cut out just the veil section and layered it over the original image after I colored it.  It is sooooo perfect!!  Subtle, but if you study it, you can see the effect.  Then I used a viva pearl pen to add little pearls to the veil.  Some antique silver frantage embossing finished it off.

Sweet Stamps #211--all girly
Digi Sketch challenge--sketch

Clear it Out Challenge--Theme: anything goes; Stash: anything goes
