TTIC #28 Part 1



Spoiler Alert!!! If you haven't Breaking Dawn, then you shouldn't read this post!!! So I made this wedding bouquet years ago when I was a floral designer. When I saw Margie's latest challenge, I instantly thought of this bouquet. I don't know if it can count towards the TTIC because it wasn't made for the challenge... but I plan on making something else anyway.

So, for Bella and Edwards Big Day (the one they actually planned for... the couple have shared many other "big days" that they didn't expect!), I thought this bouquet would be perfect for Bella. It's traditional, simple and not overpowering. I think it would work quite well with the theme that Alice created for them. It's made from really beautiful cream and pink hybrid tea roses, brick colored ranuculus, white calla lilies, and a touch of greenery. All silk. The bow is made from cream satin, and brick (or rust) colored organza.

I don't really envision the wedding having a bold color palette. I think that with Edward being so traditional, the colors would be soft. Plus, Alice used roses as part of her scent combination, so I really like the thought of Bella having roses in her bouquet. Plus, if you recall, the vampires decorate their home in very soft colors, so the wedding would probably be the same way.

So, I think that's it! I'm going to try and work on something else for this challenge now. Thanks for the great topic this week Margie!

WoW! That is a gorgeous arrangement!!!
Very pretty, and I agree, I think that the their wedding would be in soft colors too, probably Edward's fave blue ;)
Can't wait to see more!!! :*)

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
