A DT Call

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
