Fun New Challenge Blog!!!!

Hello everyone, I am pleased to be posting my first project for the exciting new challenge blog- Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central! One reason I am so excited about this new challenge blog is that it allows you to use a variety of stamps and other products, it's not product specific like some challenges (which I love too, don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of all kinds of challenges). The first challenge is to create a wedding project. I decided to mix and match all kinds of stamps in this project. The more the merrier, right?

The background of this stamp is Romantic Sunset from the new Magnolia wedding collection. I did the sunset part with my copic airbrush using y35, y32, and YR 16. After I airbrushed all the colors on, I put my blender pen in the airbrush and sprayed a little of that over it as well. To do the cloud, I just used the blender pen to take the color away. The little couple that I used for the wedding couple is actually Spring Couple from CC Designs. I think this stamp is absolutely adorable! For this card I have dressed Emma up a little bit by adding pearls and stickles to her dress, but they could be made to look more casual as well. The sentiment for the card is from Bildmalarna and is part of their new wedding release. Now, what beach wedding would be complete without the sand? This is one of my favorite new products- Mudpuddles. It comes in a little jar kind of like flock or flowersoft and you spread it on your card or layout and let it dry you don't need any kind of adhesive. It dries and stays on the project perfectly- no chipping or flaking off. I love it!!!!! It's much easier than trying to use glue and real sand-
I know I've tried that before.

I hope you can join us over on the new challenge blog.
I look forward to letting my stamps get out and play with each other!!!

Hi Mindy,

I love the way you airbrush the sunset in! I have always wonder if the airbrush will use up alot of the ink?

This is a very lovely card!
