I had such fun making today's card! I had the idea when I was making this card and got thoroughly involved in the characters as I was colouring them. I had the adults in the card holding hands and that set me thinking about romance and weddings. Come and see what happened:
Just look at them! I think they met at his sister's wedding and had a wonderful time dancing together. He took her phone number promising to call her and she was devastated when the call never came. Little did she know that he had his suit dry-cleaned with the scrap of paper still in the pocket and so he lost it. He couldn't get his blonde beauty out of his mind though and spent ages trying to trace her with his sister's help. In the end his persistence paid off and when they met up again it was as if they'd never been apart. He finally proposed on valentines day a year later, presenting her with the most beautiful diamond solitaire on bended knee. She had no hesitation in accepting of course and here they are - radiantly happy on their wedding day!
I really enjoyed dressing the happy couple! I sketched in a jacket over the shirt, tie and trousers he came in and made her a pretty vellum frock, adding lacy looking detail with my white gel pen. I chose a red theme for the wedding - have you noticed how he's wearing Cherry Cobbler socks to match the stripe in his tie?!
It's the little details that make a card special and I enjoyed giving my bride a bouquet to carry (stamped with a tiny floral stamp in Tiny Tags and added to with markers) and adding a single, tiny pearl to embellish her lacy gown.
This beautiful sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes nestles inside scored lines and I introduced more texture to the card by embossing half of the card front with my Square Lattice embossing folder. Finally, with a watercolour pencil, I shaded in some grass for them to scamper about on!
