Wishing you happiness

A wedding card share today, I coloured in the image with Copic markers & used some patterned paper from Basic Grey's bittersweet collection. Actually wanted to send this to a friend whose wedding I couldn't attend, but i ended up sending her another one instead. I learnt that you can colour the background with a copic marker and then use the colourless blender to soften the edges. This makes it look like it was airbrushed :) I think I got this tip from Debbie Olson. (link to her blog on the left bar under thinking inking blog)
The bouquet stamp is from a Rubber Soul wedding stamp set, I used the same set for the couple silhouette in a card share few days ago. The round dotted frame is from an old Heidi Swapp stamp set. Another tip when using copics, don't use versafine or stazon inks they will bleed! and most probably stain your marker nibs. I recommend Memento dye inks :)
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a nice one!
