Still Celebrating A Wedding

It's Cathy here today to share another wedding celebration! Have you shared your creation yet? Don't forget to celebrate...with the wedding twist! Make sure you add your link on the original post HERE

This project I went fairly traditional! Not sure why, but I think it was due to this lovely couple from the TH Paper Dolls collection. I have never used 'people" before but have to say...I love these! so many ideas for them, I want to add people to everything!

I used Ranger Distress Paper, then inked it up with my Distress Oxides in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. I then blended on some Broken China and splattered it with water so I got some droplets showing on the blue. I gave it a quick shot with my heat tool and then used embossing ink through the TH stencil and embossed with Charred Gold Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek. I inked the chipboard quote pieces with the Broken China as well.

I dug through my Paper Dolls and found this adorable couple and they fit the theme just right! I coloured in the roses for the bride in red. I then embossed two heart charms with the Charred Gold, just the right touch to go with the quote.

And here is the completed project!

A close up of the bridal flowers. I love this couple and you could customize the coloured roses to go with the colours of the wedding you might be attending and giving this too.

You can see the gorgeous blue in the background and the splats I got from the water, and then that gorgeous melty goodness of the Charred Gold.

And you can't have an important event with out your little 4 legged family! :)

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to share your creations with us :) 

Have a great day everyone!

Zombie Bride and Groom Card Tutorial

For the May Challenge at Mixed Media Mojo the theme was Celebration with a Wedding Twist.  Christina Sedora fellow DT Member at MMM and I LOVE the Tim Holtz Zombie Man die! So I had to use it for this month's challenge! Let's get started!

For this card, I used  Sizzix I Love You embossing folder, Tim Holtz Zombie Die, Tim Holtz Accessories Die for Hat and tie, Jolee Bride dress, Tim Holtz Flowers.
I first embossed the A7 card with the embossing folder.  The card is bigger than the embossing folder so I left a border around the embossed portion.

After die cutting two zombies, I painted them with Distress Peeled Paint by Tim Holtz. This is the perfect color for zombies!!!  Then I die cut the groom zombie with black card stock to make his zombie tuxedo, die cut with black paper for the top hat and tie.  I used pink glitter paper to die cut the hearts. This is all in the Tim Holtz Accessory dies.

For the Zombie Bride, I used Jolee satin stickers for the Bridal Gown, I used Tim Holtz Silver sparkle washi tape for the gloves, a little sprig of tulle for the veil and Tim Holtz Flowers for her bouquet.

To finish up the card, I die cut some glitter hearts from the Tim Holtz Accessory die and used Tim Holtz Chit Chats for the bottom sentiment! This was a great card to make and very easy to make!

Mixed Media Altered Canvas Tutorial

Hi everyone, I'm Christina.

Today I'm going to share with you the mixed media altered canvas I created, for this months challenge theme: Celebration with a twist Wedding.

Meet Pricilla. She's full of spirit and has a heart of gold....waiting for the man of her dreams. In the meantime you can see her all dolled up as she heads down the aisle with her abundance of flowers and glitter in her hair.

Let's get started......

Grab any size of canvas (I chose a 5x7) and cover it with Tim Holtz idea ology adhesive sheets, burlap. Then cover it with distress spray stain black soot. Heat set.

Next I used TH layered stencils, Industrial and Halloween with texture paste and let air dry. Once dried, apply distress inks Wilted Violet and Candied Apple on top.

Stamp image twice with Ranger archival ink - black on TH distress watercolour card stock (on the smooth side) and colour with various distress oxides and a h2o water brush.

Using TH mini snips, fussy cut "Pricilla" all the flowers and use pop ups for dimension. Add rhinestones in her hair and color them with an oil base marker. I used a copic marker. Doesn't she look pretty.....

Using a mini sponge tool and distress ink black soot, go over edges of stamp to make her pop out. The stamp I used is from Stampers Anonymous Day of the Dead 1.

For an added touch I used some of my favourite Tim Holtz idea ology finds - arrow adornment, skull (notice I added a couple rhinestones for the eyes with a little color for creepiness), metal corner.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and it leaves you feeling inspired.
There is still time left in the May challenge Celebration with a twist Wedding. We'd love to see what you create.

Have a great day,

This is what my project looked like:

Step 1 : Stamp the image using VersaMark Ink Pad. Pour embossing powder over your image to cover all inked areas. Heat the embossing powder with a heating tool until completely melted.

Step 2 : I using spray inks to do a blue sprayed background. Let it dry. Lightly spritz it with water.

Step 3 : I die cut the Tim Holtz SEWING ROOM Dress Form die from the chipboard. Paint with acrylic paints.

Step 4 : Sewing the doll wedding dress.

Step 5 : I added some punched butterflies from Martha Stewart's punch and some gems over the skirt. I adhere the dress to the dress form and decorate a necklace.

And this is the completed project. I hope you like it!
