The East Wind Facebook Contest - Wedded Bliss

As well as hosting blog challenges, The East Wind have a fabulous group page on Facebook where you have the chance to win more TEW images by entering our Facebook Contest. The new contest starting today is themed 'Wedded Bliss'. We want to see you create a Wedding themed project using an image from The East Wind and share it with our Facebook group.

I have used the 'Flowery Bride' image for my DT inspiration card. I have coloured her with promarkers and edged the paper using Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord DI. With a wedding being such a special occasion I have made a larger 8x8 card and used some of my favourite papers - the Craftwork Cards Time Flies Collection.

The top left corner uses die cut flowers from the Time Flies kit and to make extra flowers I have used scraps of the papers with my Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations Tattered Florals Bigz die. The rolled centres are Marianne Designs Chinese Rose die cuts again from the paper scraps. I have then used Time Flies candi in the smaller flowers too. All the flowers and candi have been tinted slightly with the same Distress Inks.
The layered butterfly and paper bow are all die cuts provided in the kit as is the plaque. I have left this blank, it would be printed with the names of the happy couple and date of the wedding. The small butterflies have been coated with glossy accents and there is Star Dust stickles on the flower centres and butterfly wings (difficult to see).

I look forward to seeing your wedding creations!
Thanks for looking!
