Old, New, Borrowed, & Blue Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Old, New, Borrowed, and Blue Blog Hop!

Wedding bells will soon be ringing as the wedding season is almost here, and the design teams of Red Carpet Studio and The Paper Nest Dolls have teamed up to provide you with some beautiful wedding inspiration by creating projects using Paper Nest Dolls digital stamps! If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

Red Carpet Studio is a movie-themed challenge blog that runs weekly challenges, alternating between layout and card challenges each week. All of their challenges are inspired by either a movie or aspect of Hollywood!
The Paper Nest Dolls is a brand new digital/rubber stamp shop that sells adorable stamps inspired by the designer's children. Their stamps are sold here and they just started a challenge blog as well!

For my project I made a wedding trellis! As soon as I saw this cut in the Silhouette store a few weeks ago, I knew it would be the perfect project for this hop!

The trellis stands about 7" high and is about 5" wide, it's cut from Kraft cardstock. I distressed it a bit with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink by Tim Holtz to give it more of an aged/weathered look. 

The digi is about 4" tall and colored with Copics. I used:

Tuxedo: C7, C5, C3
Skin: E00, E01, E02, R20
Hair: Y13, Y15, Y19, E25, E29
Dress: N1, 0
Flowers/Bow: B00, B02

I also added some Star Dust Stickles to her veil. 

I used 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon (in Aqua Splash and Sterling) to drape the trellis. 

I dyed the flowers blue using Broken China Distress Ink and water. After they dried I added some Diamond Stickles to both the blue and white flowers for a more "enchanted" feel.

To prop the digi up (there was a slot for the image the original cut came with, but it wouldn't work for the idea I had in mind) I used a toothpick, some tacky tape, and a glue dot to hold it up. Not the most eye-catching from behind, but certainly practical!

The Paper Nest Dolls owner and artist, Christine, is very generously providing us with some blog candy from her online stamp shop and her brick and mortar scrapbooking store! To be eligible to win you must comment on every stop of both days of the hop.
