Wedding Lilies

     June is the traditional wedding month and in keeping with that, Tammy has released some wedding digis this week at A Day For Daisies.  I chose to use this image, "Lily Wedding".  I added some yellow to the lily centers and then painted the petals with Fairy Dust paint from Creative Inspirations Paint.  I added a little dimensional paint to the stamens too.
     Today marks the beginning of a new challenge at the ADFD blog and we want to see "Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue".  Whew!  The background stamp and seam binding are old.  The image and Doily die are brand new.  The buttons are from my can for collecting stray buttons.  The blue had me stumped for a while, but I finally settled on adding some stamping to the background panels in blue.  I stamped them first in Memento Summer Sky and then re-stamped with Versamark and embossed with a Bridal Tinsel embossing powder.  It softened the blue.  I also added some blue background around the lilies.  The Doily die had double holes on the sides so I tied the seam binding through them.
     Make sure to pop by the ADFD blog and snag Tammy's freebie so you can play along in the new challenge too.  :-)
     Happy Friday!
