Neutral Wedding Mice

I don’t have much for wedding stamps, kind of like my graduation inventory, so I tend to use the same one over and over again. It’s not a big deal to the recipients, but I have to try and find new ways to keep myself from falling into a rut. Thankfully there were several challenges running that gave me several ideas. (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).
Sketch Inspiration ~ Stamps & Smiles #20
Color Inspiration I know there’s a bit of pink in here, but I didn’t have much in the tan/bamboo category. I tried to keep everything to ‘shades’ of brown with a few pink high lights. Color Chef Challenge #11 ~ white & tan (bamboo) ABC Challenge ~ T is for Two Tone
Inspiration 365 Cards 112 ~ Everlasting Love: Create a wedding card, and use the word "Love" in the sentiment This verse is actually the familiar full baby phrase. I just taped off the last 2 lines so I could use it here. A Spoon Full of Sugar #57 ~ Wedding Cards High Hopes Challenge #36 ~ Use your scraps I keep a small ‘bucket’ on my desk and toss in any scraps (1/4 page size or smaller). I frequently pull pieces out. My Creation
Image Detail I did a bit of faux stitching to create a border around the couple and also to ‘piece’ together the background pieces. For some reason the white ink turned pink on the paper from Prima. I added Flower Soft to give the bride’s bouquet a realistic feel. Inside
