Bridal Shower


     Yesterday I attended a bridal shower for my cousin's daughter.  I needed a card to go with my gift so I pulled out this yet un-inked Uptownie from Stamping Bella.  Since these are larger stamps it can be a bit challenging to find a layout that works well.  I did a Google search to see what others had done with this stamp and found one done by my amazingly talented TSG team mate, Kim O'Connell.....and I totally copied it.  LOL  I used different colors and I don't have her coloring skills so it is different in those regards, but I just loved the simple layout.
  Here's a close up of the image called "Emily and Ryan under the umbrella".


Copics Used:
skin E000, E00, E11
her clothing  BG11, BG13, BG72, BG75, YR21
his clothing and shoes E40, E41, E42, E43, E47, E74, E79
flower bouquet  and grass R35, R39, R43, R81, R85, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99
umbrella Y11, Y21, YR21

     It's the start of a brand new week.  Hope yours is wonderful!

Supplies:
Paper--Bazzill, Recollections, Georgia Pacific, Copic XPress-it Blending card
Stamps--Stamping Bella "Uptown Emily and Ryan under the umbrella"
Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black, Jet Black Archival

  2. This is such a wonderful card. The colour scheme is striking. Love the vibrant colours against the white. Your colouring may be different from Kim's but it is equally skillful and amazing...and that's saying something because she is a star, too. This is such a sweet image for a wedding shower or anniversary card. Love it!
