I've always loved this little bride image, and several of us have been petitioning for a groom to go with her. I'd say that Karen came through in flying colors; he's perfect beside her! I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement right, centering them close together in the middle of a square Fabriano Medioevalis notecard. After watercoloring them with watercolor crayons and a waterbrush, I used the largest of my Small Plain Square dies to emboss the card front. (Nichole's tutorial on that is here.) How about that rock? I couldn't resist! It was the smallest rhinestone that I had--a bit overwhelming, and way too tiring for someone with fingers that thin--but it was a necessary embellishment. . .
For the envelope, I used an Itty Bitty Vase stamp and coordinated the flowers in it with those in the bride's bouquet. I added some Spica Glitter pen accents (clear, melon, and lavender) in both the bride's bouquet and the vase. It was fun to pull out my watercolor crayons again! Thanks for visiting.

Newsflash: Some of you have been writing me about my Copic marker colors, saying that Ellen didn't carry all of the colors that I've been using. FYI, Ellen now has them in stock! In fact, she's got some that I don't even have. . . No doubt I'll have to remedy that situation! ;-D
