We are being inspired by words this time around at the Time Out Challenge blog! And the words are:
Happy is the bride that the sun shines on...
Here's my take on those words. This is an oldie but goodie stamp from Inkadinkadoo. It wasn't my first choice. I couldn't find the stamp I originally wanted, but guess when I found it? That's right...just after I finished this one! Isn't that always the way things happen? Anyway, I first stamped the image in Versamark and embossed it in white. Then I took some picked raspberry ink and watercolored the image. Spun sugar was watercolored around it so the image showed up a bit more. The sentiment was stamped in smoky slate ink and I added sequins (mine never look as good as some other stampers!) and a strip of pink cardstock. The main panel is mounted on a basic gray base.
I'm also entering this into Virginia's View challenge. I think it qualifies.
Thanks for stopping by!
