Stamping Bella Wedding Congrats!

OK, here is the first card I put together from the class we took with Paula in Toronto. I have to be honest and say that this image is the least favorite of all the images we colored, but it still was an opportunity to learn a lot about coloring!!! We learned how to color faces and also learned that French Grey 90% is the go-to color for shadows/shading!
With the class, Paula provides the cards and the paper - so I can't tell you who makes them, but I added the beige ribbon and the PTI sentiment! I also added glitter to her dress and veil.

I'm psyched because my NEW ATG gun arrived!! Yah!!!!! I've been putting off this purchase for quite a long time but because of my exciting news........I HAD to have it!!!

And that news is................a high school acquaintance of mine owns a FABULOUS store in Greenwich, CT. It's called "SPLURGE" and you do just that when you go there. She tries to use local artists for all her products and after some urging and encouragement from friends - I got the nerve up to ask her if she'd like to carry some of my cards and she said "YES"!!!!

So, it was a necessity to upgrade my adhesive and ATG is the one!!

If you are local to Greenwich, CT - I STRONGLY suggest you go visit Sonia's store at: 19A East Putnam Avenue, Greenwich, CT 06830. She really has beautiful things there and I haven't left the store empty-handed there yet!!!


Thanks for visiting today and hope you are having a great week!!

Wonderful card! I love the simplicity (and the glitter, of course).

Thank you for that tip on French Grey. I am trying to get into a copic class near chicago but because CHA is that week, their spots are mostly filled. I am a ways down the wait list.

Congrats on the other news. How fun! I'm sure people will snap up your lovely cards.

PS...just gimme a holler if you need to know any part. paper from class. This wedding card is the new Basic Grey Capella line. I usually grab what is the newest I can find, then it's easier to grab more if needed. :)

Congratulations on the gig with "Splurge". Now you can look at your expenditures in that store as a business development cost!
