Here Comes the Bride...

Isn't Bridal Hanna just beautiful?? I think she is one of the neatest Bride stamps I have ever seen! This is another one of the new Hanna Stamps sets being released this Friday, July 4th. The Bridal Hanna set includes her attendants as well - a flower girl and a bridesmaid - and they are both oh so cute - it's a perfect set for all those wedding card and project needs!

This card is one of those cards that is prettier in real life than in the picture - it's more sparkly in real life - I added drops of Stickles to her dress and earrings. I also did some decorative scoring with the Scor-Pal on the white background - but it's hard to see in the picture. Hanna was colored in with Copic Markers - I used the VERY cool tip that Marianne posted on her "I Like Markers" Copic Blog - http://www.ilikemarkers.blogspot.com/ - she did a great post on how to color in a "white" image - like a bride's dress - I used a Cool Shadow (BG10) Copic marker to go around the inside of her dress and veil and then went back over it with the colorless blender - I think it really makes the bride image pop! The sentiment is from an old clear Wordsworth stamp set that i have had forever - and the little charm is from Oriental Trading Company I believe (they were a RAK from a very dear friend). I did a little machine stitching around the image and some Cuttlebug embossing on the background - I used both the Swiss Dots and Paisley folders.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! And don't forget about the Hanna Stamps Release Party over on SCS this Thursday night - see you there!

That blog tip from I like markers was just in time for us. I noticed that I didn't color the top of Hanna's hair. I will have to go fix mine up.
