Crafty Sentiments - Bride in Monochrome

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has been having a good weekend. I managed to get some gardening done along with working on some craft projects.

Since it's Sunday, it's time for the latest challenge with Crafty Sentiments. This week, we are challenging you to make a project using the above sketch.

I used Bride2 for my card. Isn't she lovely?

I colored Bride2 with copic markers, and then used Smooch in Moonlight on the ribbon on her dress, and Smooch in Iridescent on her veil. My wedding dress was covered in lace, so I decided to try to recreate that effect on her dress. To do so, I used a white gel pen to draw in random squiggles all over the dress fabric, and then went back in with a Sakura Glaze pen in white (it has a raised texture when dry) and dotted in some "pearls". It didn't photograph all that well, but the finished "lace" looks lovely in person.

Copic markers used:
