Papertake Weekly Challenge--My Favorite Things



I love weddings--who doesn't?? This image from Stampendous, "Fran's Fashions" has got to be one of the most beautiful wedding stamps around. I had always wanted to see what this would be like if it was done in black and white, and this was the perfect time to try it out. Normally, I would have done this on a white background, but thought I'd kick it up a notch by stamping it on black. I used a white versa mark stamp pad, and used detail white embossing powder. To make the tuxedo stand out a bit more, I used an Ink Essentials pen to color in the shirt of the tux. To pick up the buttons and the pearls on the wedding gown, I used stickles. When the light hits it right, it looks like real crystals on the gown! The patterned paper is from Magenta, "Bold design and Butterflies". An EK Success edger punch finished the edges of both the card and the patterned paper. The burgandy flowers I had in my craft treasures from years gone by!! I hate to throw anything out cause you never know when you'll need it--perfect instance with the flowers!! The little corner stickers are from an unknown source. When I bought them, they had no package with them. I purchased all of my supplies for this project at The Rubber Room. All in all, I'm so pleased with how this card turned out!

Hope you are enjoying a few of your 'favorite things'...
