Sweet Little Couple

Well.....I'm in anniversary card mode this week for my upcoming card sale.  This Anniversary card (which says Happy Anniversary on the inside) was stamped with a photo stamp from Stampsmith.  She has the most beautiful photo stamps.  I stamped it with Memento Ink on Matte Coated paper.  This paper is much like glossy but the finish on it is matte instead.  I like it very much!  The image was colored with copics.  I even colored a lot of light blue on her veil.  It really made the veil look more see thru.  The big flowers are some that a friends shared with me.  She said that she got them in the wedding department at Michaels.  I colored them with copics and then colored some paper and punched out the little flowers.  The pearls are from Queen & Co.  I wasn't sure what paper nor design I wanted for this stamp.  As I was heading for the scrap box, there was the decorated paper, just sitting there.  Perfect!!  I wanted some 'lace' and the EK Success border punch was just perfect.  Lacy without being fussy.  I wondered if I could use the border punch to do my corners and after a littly playing....Yeah!.....it worked.  The patterned paper is mounted on a cream base.  Enjoy!!

This is WONDERFUL!!! Love that "photo." And your choice of very pastel colors for tinting is PERFECT!

oooooooh, this is so pretty, Ann....I love the coloring you did on the image, it looks wonderful. I'm gonna have to go find some of that matte paper, it certainly works well for the vintage look image you chose. I'm so glad you shared this with us.
