Karen's Doodles Here Comes the Bride!

Today is Oldies but Goodies Day over at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog.  This is a chance for you to get a peek at some of Karen's older images that you may have missed. And hopefully inspire you to create.

For my card I started with Karen's Doodles image called Here Comes the Bride, sizing and printing it onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Faces - E00
Bride's hair - Y23, YR12
Gown - B0000, RV42, R32
Shoes - R32
Bouquet - G21, R32
Groom's Hair - E13
Tux and Shoes - W3, W5
Shadow - W1
Next I went in search of paper and found my Basic Grey Capella paper pack.  It was close but not quite the right color so I tried something new.  I airbrushed some R32 onto each of the patterned papers to get them to more perfectly match my colors.  I really like the rich vintage look of it.  I used R30 on the lace to get it to match.  The fabulous French Pastry Doily is a new die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Click on the picture and go to the larger version to see all the detailing in this fabulous die cut.  Finished size is 6" square.

Be sure to stop by the Karen's Doodles Challenge blog to see the cards from my other team members.  And won't you join us in the Animal Friends challenge this week  for a chance to win Karen's Doodles digi images.

This is one of my favorite images of Karen's - I can't tell you how many times I have used it. I even made a card for her daughter using it.
Love the fun color and pattern you chose to use.
