Beautiful Together



Hello!  This year I told myself that I was going to try to broaden my crafting horizons.   Try out for a new design team.  Or two.  See what the big wide paper crafting world had to offer.  Even if I didn't make the team..  I happened to see that Tiddly Inks is currently hosting a design team call.  (Click HERE for details.) And after about a week of talking myself into it (I made the mistake of checking out the insanely talented competition first!) I decided to create something and throw my hat in the ring.

I chose to work with You and Me.  It's such a sweet and romantic image!  Perfect for the wedding card I needed to make.  I colored the couple with Copics and added liberal amounts of Frosted Lace Stickles to her dress.  My layout is based on the July sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces (CLP-60).  I really am all about the embellishments and I love CLP's sketches because they are always dripping with gorgeous layers and details!  My papers are from DCWV (The Luxury Stack).  I have used a couple of dies - Romantic Rectangles from Spellbinders and a Magnolia flourish.  The words behind the blissful couple is a Wedding Word Print stamp from Hero Arts.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo for this.  There's also some bling, lace, flowers, a metal filigree corner and a couple of Martha Stewart punches thrown in for good measure!



And there you have it!  Wish me luck!

Markers used: Copics (E000, E00, E11, E21, E23, E25, E31, E33, E34, E37, R00, R02, R20).

It is a beautiful card and the images are darling. Your coloring is always beautiful. You should be a snap to get in. I am happy with 2 DT's but admire you gals that have lots. I'm just to lazy to want to be that busy.

Your card is absolutely gorgeous! Good Luck!!! :D
