Always & Forever


When I saw my new stamp set from FCD called Parisian Romance I wasn't sure what to play with first. I knew I had wanted to try coloring some skin tones with my Copics (E00 & E11) so I grabbed the stamp of holding hands first :) I am really pleased with how this one came out. The paper was in the scrap bin and brown on one side and polka dot on the other so I used that for layers and added some cream that I ran through the cuttlebug with my Swiss Dots folder. I then ran my Cognac ink pad across it to bring the dots out more. The scalloped layers were cut with my Slice! and I then just mis-aligned them in the center to create a more balanced look. The ribbon is from my January Club pack from Really Reasonable Ribbon it has a little sparkle and shimmer in it which I love! I also added some Sakura Metallic Silver for the bracelet for a little more glitz. I decided to add the flower to the top also and it is from Prima with a little green brad in the center.

Enjoy!
