papertrey ink wedding card


Hello everyone,
It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and this time Nichole gave us some photo inspiration

June Blog Hop Inspiration

"This month we are doing something a bit different and providing you with an inspiration photo along with a few downloadable color and sketch recipe cards inspired by it.  You can choose to work with any of the ideas above or use other components of the inspiration photo to jump start your creation.  Have fun with it and challenge yourself to work outside of your comfort zone!"

I chose to use several of the colours in the photo and to use the circles on the carpet as inspiration for one of the wedding cards I need to make this summer. I also wanted to use the Man and Wife dies, so I started with them and cut the figures in soft stone and the man's suit in a silver gray textured card before adding melon berry accents. I decorated the wedding dress by stamping one of the Bitty Background stamps on the lower part with versamark ink and then clear embossed it to give the dress a patterned satin feel, before putting a strip of melon berry across as a sash.

I then used a Lil' Inker stitched square die to cut a panel of yellow card and stamped circles on it from the Sketched Shapes and  Polka Dot Basics sets. The sentiment is from Quilled Elegance, and I cut the stamp apart to make the two line greeting easier.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop.
