An abundance of happiness

I am sharing a card for A Blog Named Hero's Old & New challenge. You still have a couple of days left to join this challenge.

“Something old and something new…”, of course I had to make a wedding card using some old and some brand new Hero Arts products.

I started by cutting three layers of clouds using my brand new “Cloudy sky scene dies” before I ink blended them in various shades of pink and coral to make some bright, pink clouds. I then ink blended the background blue.

I splattered a few drops of water and some Tattered Angels glimmer mist spray on the clouds and background before I turned to the images. I stamped the vintage 1920's dancing couple from the February 2019 My Monthly hero kit wich is my old thing. I also stamped three doves from the December 2019 MMH kit (kind of old kit, but still an image I haver never used intil now, so something old AND new).

I wanted the woman to look a little more like a bride som I drew her head dress a bit bigger to make it look like a vail. I then colored the images using my copic markers in the following colors:

Bride and groom: C3, C1. 0, RV11, R00, E33, E31, E02, E00
Doves: C3, C1, 0

I glued my images to the cloudy card panel and stamped my sentiment, also from the Descember 2019 MMH kit.

I cut my scene to size using a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die and glued it to a white card base.

For a finishing touch I gave the vail, parts of the dress, the bridal shoes and the doves a touch of sparkle using a Sakura glitter pen.

And there you have it; a cute couple dancing on their pink clouds.

I hope you will use the last few days of our “old and new-challenge” to dig into your Hero Arts stash and make lovely things.

Sending you all a few pink clouds to brighten your day.
