Bride To Be

Made this for a bridal shower:

Supplies and notes:
  • Tim Holtz Day of the Dead couple inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black on Canson watercolor paper
  • Edges daubed with Gathered Twigs DI
  • Prima crackle stamp inked with Tim's MM Palette in Vintage Photo and then dabbed with a baby wipe prior to stamping around edges
  • Ranger Liquid Pearls dotted around edges (which pulled up some of the brown ink and yielded a really nice aged look)
  • Red accents added by inking my craft mat with Fired Brick DOx and Aged Mahogany DI, spraying with water, and brushing on to the image
  • Flowers from Tim's Idea-ology
  • Vintage seam binding (which matches the wedding... FYI... bonus points...)
  • This panel was adhered to a piece of Tim's DP with edges inked with Gathered Twigs to reduce the pale cuts
  • Sentiment frame at top by Tim Holtz; sentiment written with a Faber Castell Pitt; panel inked with Gathered Twigs DI then coated with Distress Collage Medium in Crazing; popped up with 3M dimensional adhesive 
That's it!

I'll share this with The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers whose current challenge is...
