Welcome to Day 2 of the Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue Blog Hop!
Wedding bells will soon be ringing as the wedding season is almost here, and the design teams of Red Carpet Studio and The Paper Nest Dolls have teamed up to provide you with some beautiful wedding inspiration by creating projects using Paper Nest Dolls digital stamps! If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Red Carpet Studio.
Red Carpet Studio is a movie-themed challenge blog that runs weekly challenges, alternating between layout and card challenges each week. All of their challenges are inspired by either a movie or aspect of Hollywood!
The Paper Nest Dolls is a brand new digital/rubber stamp shop that sells adorable stamps inspired by the designer's children. Their stamps are sold here and they just started a challenge blog as well!
For my project today, I chose a lovely little image known as "The Wedding". I absolutely loved working with this image and of course my favorite color is blue so this was one of the projects that stood out for me.
This card is made from Gina K Kraft card stock. It is a square card measuring 5.5X5.5". I NEVER work with lace (something old) so this was a big step for me (in fact I did 2 cards with lace in the same day). I wanted to make this card really feminine so I thought the lace did just that. I used MME Lost & Found Portabello patterned paper. I also used Bazill pale blue glossy paper along with dark grey card stock too. I added Maya Road chipboard hearts (something new, to me) which were coloured with Copics and dazzled up with Diamond stickles. I also added some pearls and seam binding ribbon to tie it all together.
The Copic markers I used were: Skin E000, E00, E11 and R20. Hair: E50, E51, E53, E23 and E25. His outfit was done with N1, N3, N5, 110 and 0. Her outfit was done with BG0000, BG00, C1 and 0. Flowers and bow tie: BG02, BG05, BG07, YG23, and YG25 (with some Diamond Stickles)
