Loving bridal couple


I made another Wedding card with loving bridal couple. I was very happy when I saw that the new Magnolia’s collection has many wedding stamps, because coloring these two is getting a little boring. 🙂
This is my second purple wedding card, but I can’t remember ever seeing a bride in purple or even bridesmaids. I think the usual colors are pink, peach or ivory. Am I wrong?

I have a question. Those of you that use Langton watercolor paper, which one exactly do you use. I bought Langton HP prestige w.p. from UK store and last week I bought Langton HP w.p. (not prestige) here in Slovenia and the difference is HUGE!!! The first one is gorgeous, the result is great, there is no tearing of the paper (little pieces, I don’t know the English phrase or word for it). Paper bought here is awful, little pieces of paper are tearing when coloring over the same spots and the colors are just not right. Do you have any similar experiences?

For this card I used:

  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: First edition papers – Dreamcatcher
  • stamp: Loving bridal couple (Wedding Collection, 2010)
  • dies: Magnolia Doohickey –peacock feathers, Spellbinders floral ovals
  • flowers from Wild orchid crafts, I am roses
  • cheesecloth
  • liquid pearls – color opal
  • stickles glue (stardust)
  • TH crackle paint (picket fence) 
  • purple organza ribbon
  • frantage (chunky white, aged gold).

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:

  1. Stamp and create with Magnolia: Spring shaped card
  2. Magnolia Down Under: Bling it baby
  3. Midweek Magnolias: Make it sparkle
  4. Tilda’s Town: Let’s celebrate 
Thank you all for your lovely comments! Hugs, t.

    Hey Tamara!

    Your card is fantastic! I love the colours you have used. I understand what your saying about the paper coming away. I call it balling when the paper tears like that. It has happened to me and I put it down to the paper not actually being water colour!Its annoying but I'd stick to the paper you originally bought.

Voščilnica je pa tako lepa, bogata z dodatki in res uau!!! joj za nove Tilde ti pa res zavidam :))) sama sem brez denarcev 🙁 komaj čakam, da jih vidim v tvoji izvedbi. lp

    Beautiful card Tamara! Gorgeous coloring! I have the Langton Prestige Hot Press watercolor pad. After I purchased two pads of it here in the USA, I realized the ones the other gals are using has a green cover and it seems like the ink moves on it better for them than it does on the Prestige. I use Canson Montval cold press too and the ink moves better on it than the Prestige. There must be some trick to how much water to use! : ) So glad you linked up to Tilda's Town challenges! Thanks for playing!
