Happy Times - Magnolia Tilda - Wedding Card Keepsake

It has been a really interesting week with all that I am learning either on Etsy, photography & colouring with Copics.  There is SO much that I want to learn & it just seems that there is never enough time during the day to get it all done :)  One step at a time I keep telling myself lol.

Want to WIN a Magnolia Mini stamp blog candy?
Just click here to enter.

Those of you that follow my blog would probably know by now that I normally colour two of the same image when designing.  I do this as I find it easier & quicker to do two rather than just one.  It is probably because I already have the Copic colours picked out & it saves time.  I mention this because...yes, I have used this image on another design before :)

This is Bride Tilda with her Bridesmaid.  I used Liquid Pearls to do the tiara, necklace & also the shoes on the Bridesmaid.

I also used Stickles on the bottom of Tilda's wedding dress, veil & both of their shoes.  I tried a different technique & distressed the flowers with Ranger Distress Ink.  I really like the effect it gives them.  I think it helps them stand out more.

This is the actual card part of the Card Keepsake.  I used rope pearls & ribbon that I have had in my stash for some time.  It has all gone now so there is room to buy some more lol.  Do you like the hat pin?  The spacers I bought off of Ebay some time ago & also the heart embellishments were actually charms but I cut the hoop hole off of it.

I covered the canvas in cream / ivory coloured material & the lace around the edge is hand-sewn.  I am really happy with how elegant it turned out, I just wish I could take better photos that give the design more justice as it is a lot more prettier 'in person'.

I decorated both insides of the card this time :)

There is definately quite a lot of dimension to this design...and I love it!! lol

Oh, there is a tag too :)
