Love is in the Air

Happy Friday,

I hope everyone had a great week! Well the rains finally stopped. Unfortunately, many of the roads did not fair well and they were just repaired last year from our torrential rains.  Today is sunny and hot. Just the way I like it.

I am so excited I was chosen to be a guest designer at the end of this month at Simply Magnolia!

Today I would like to share a new image from Magnolia Precious Moments. I colored my images with Copic Markers, use spica pens to highlight the couples hairs and the vines from the flowers, and I added glitter to Tilda's dress and the top of her veil. To create a vintage look I used brownish greys on Edwin's tux and I used the periwinkle blue to match the paper from the Precious Moments collection.

I created my lace flowers by using the Doily Flowers and Vintage Daisy. I took lace and painted it with a matte medium. Once it was dry, I used my dies to create the flowers. I added some pearl bling to the center of each flower.

Here is a close up of the happy couple:

Below I have listed the products I used:
Vintage Bridal Couple and Royal Wedding Fence
Copic Markers
Spica Pens
Fine Glitter
Magnolia Doo Hickey Dies - Doily Flowers, Tilda Ticket, Vintage Daisy
Cherry Lynn - Heart Die
Ribbon, Flowers, Trim, Misc. Embellishments
