Bridal Guests and Congratulations to a Good Friend

Published by at 11:03 pm under SCS Design Team,Spellbinders,Wedding

I have a few more pictures to feature in the bridal series and then I’ll move on to Christmas projects I’ve been working on.

Today I’m posting two pictures of the bridal guests.  I absolutely adore these stamps from Rubbernecker!  In fact, I like them so much that after I finished this series I placed an order with Rubbernecker and purchased all of their “lady” stamps.  I stamped and colored two of the images using Prisma colored pencils.  Using a craft knife I cut both images and adhered them together using Dimensionals. I then placed the image on top of the oval using Dimensionals again for added depth.  I made a necklace using micro pearls using Crystal Effects as my adhesive.  I used a Quickie Glue Pen to color in the dress polka dots, shoes, hat, and gloves and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on the glue.

I did the same on this image, coloring two, adhering with Dimensionals for depth.  I used gold micro beads for the earring and pearl micro beads for the purse handle and the area on the dress where the skirt and bodice adjoin.  I used Dazzling Diamonds on the scarf, gloves, purse, skirt, and shoes.

I was hoping to get a better close up picture, I’m going to try to get a better one and replace this with one that is clearer.  I love the detail in the handbag.  I placed micro pearls on the purse handle and gold micro beads on the purse’s clasp and along the top.  You can see the pearls on the dress as well.
