Lili of the Valley Challenge – New Beginnings

For our last challenge of 2010 on Lili of the Valley Challenge we have a theme to follow – new beginnings.  This could be a new baby, new job, new school, new life together – wedding or engagement or any new event, new technique or even any new crafty stash.  I have gone with the wedding theme, new stamp, new Doo Hickey dies and a new technique (distressing the seam binding)

I have coloured the image “I Do” (which will be on sale on 11th January) with Copics:
Skin:  E21, E00, E000, R20
Wedding Dress: B000, B0000
Flowers: B23, B21, YG63, YG11
Groom’s Hair:  E29, E25, E35, E50
Bride’s Hair:  E33, E53, E50
Groom’s suit:  C9, C7, C5, C3, C1

The papers are Magnolia Something Old, Something New.  I decided I had stroked them for way too long!  The dies are all Magnolia Doo Hickey dies – Leaf and swirl, Tilda lace border and tag.

The pearls, guipure lace and flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used 15mm roses, 4mm rose buds, 25mm tea rose, 20mm rose

I cut out a heart, punched two holes in so it looked like a button then coated with Distress Crackle Paint, then once dry heat embossed with UTEE to give a high shine.  I distressed the seam binding (video to follow this weekend).

This card is available on Ebay along with a few others.
