Monday, Monday.. we know how that goes! Like many of you, I am doing my last minute shopping and making preparations for Christmas… it is just a few days away! I am also looking forward to our winter break at school! The kids are in “holiday mode” already, and I cannot blame them but oh my.. what a week it will be!
I took a much-needed break from this weekend and colored up a beautiful new image by Mo Manning called “Garden Bride”. You can find her here. This lovely bride comes in shaded and unshaded versions. For those new to copics and “shading” having the pre-shaded images really helps you place those shadows and highlights.
I wanted her to be set in a vintage color scheme; pale peach and white/ivory. I die cut my image with Spellbinder Ovals and Grand Scallop Ovals. Her gorgeous gown is colored her dress with “C”and some “BV” copics to create the shading and then using Diamond Dust glitter over her veil and dress. Her flowers and roses along the hemline of her dress feature some RV, and peachy R copics. I really do play with lots of colors so I did not keep a list of them. Her skin features the usual copic skin colors (E000, E00, E11, E04 and R20). I colored her hair using #44, 43, 42 AND 40. Around her image, I put several Viva Decor “pearls” in ivory.
My design paper is from Pion 6×6 sheets, roses by Wild Orchid Crafts and sentiment by Create with TLC, one of my favorites for a wedding card. I added beautiful lace, a Resin Heart on which I attached some bling, gorgeous rose/rhinestone embellishment from Noor Design. This card is available in my ETSY SHOP (see sidebar).
Hoping all of you have a wonderful holiday. I am hoping to get back into my craft room next week for more time to play, how I miss it! Until then, have a great day, and thank you as always for your kind comments!
