Beautiful Bride

     I have the honor of being a Guest Designer at Through the Craft Room Door this week and the challenge is being sponsored by Digistamps4Joy.  I used their lovely "Bedazzled Bride" image.

     I challenged myself this time to try doing white-on-white again.  I've tried it a few times in the past and have never been happy with the results.  However, I admit to really liking this one and being proud of it.  :-D

     I did color some of the image with ProMarkers (her skin & hair) and a bit of gold paint pen to highlight the embroidery on her dress.  I used an out-of-the-box technique to die cut the image with one of my oldest dies from Spellbinders.  I layered that onto two more die cut frames, both by Spellbinders, and I used dimensional tape to separate the layers, adding texture and dimension.  Both of the lower layers are "Linen" embossed with a folder.

     I decided that I really wanted to showcase the die cuts so I didn't add any flowers, or lace, or ribbons, or any of the more common embellishments for wedding cards.  I think it's more than enough as it it.
