There is a DT Call going on over at the Critter Sketch Challenge blog!
Woo hoo! You know how much I love sketches! =D When I saw the DT Call, I just knew I had to apply. On top of the DT Call, the Critters are having a wedding challenge, so I thought I would combine them. I hope that's ok!!
I used a sketch provided by the Critters. (I'd show you...but I think to see it you need to apply to the DT call!) The image is from one of my favorite digi stores...you guessed it! Tiddly Inks! I just love this little couple. It reminds me a lot of the Precious Moments statuettes everyone used to collect when I was a kid. I colored the couple using Copics, then covered the veil with crystal Stickles. I used a Spellbinders die for the background, edged with chalk ink in chestnut roan, and hand stitched to the background. (I'm having so much fun with my stitching tools!!) The background I embossed with a Stampin' Up folder...I just love this vintage wallpaper look. The paper was actually a little bit bigger than the folder, so I had to emboss it twice. Luckily I was able to line up the embossing on the sides. The ribbon in the corners and the pearls are from Michael's Craft Stores, and the flowers are from a blog candy I won a few months back.
Well, thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll be working on a number of things this weekend, so I'll be seeing you soon! =D
