Hi there, oooh its lovely to be able to find some time to play in my craftroom. I don't know about you but i'm terrible for starting loads of projects and not finishing them. I did manage to finish this wedding card using stamps from Chocolate Baroque
As soon as I saw this beautiful bride stamp I thought she would be perfect with the little church from the Village Life themeplate. I stamped the church on encaustic art card, masked it and then stamped in the trees (from the same themeplate) I brayered the sky and the drive and stamped some grasses in the foreground using stamps from one of the Design-a-Tree A6 themeplates. The church and trees were coloured with promarkers. Its such a different technique colouring on this coated cardstock, the colours don't blend as well and you have to be careful not to get too much ink on the card too.
The bride is from the 'Wedding Belle' sheet of stamps. I stamped her on card and coloured her skin and hair with promarkers and added glamour dust to her veil. The bride's dress is left plain on the stamp so it really lends itself to paperpiecing. I took inspiration from the Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge where the theme is parchment and decided to have a go at a parchment wedding dress. I stamped the bride on parchment and embossed with white ep and then stamped some of the leafy swirls from the same stamp set over her dress and again embossed with white EP. I cut the dress out and embossed the back with an embossing tool to try and create some folds in the skirt. Now I'm a total beginner with parchment but i'll definitely use this technique again as it gave the dress a really lovely shape so once i'd attached it to the image it has a lovely 3d effect. To finish the card off I stamped the sentiment (also from Wedding Belle) and embossed with gold EP and used some gold mirri to mat the scene.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting today, now I'd better get on with some more of those unfinished cards in my craftroom. Have a good weekend
