~Wedded Bliss~ Friday Reveal Day at SOUS!

What?!? It's Friday already???  Wow has this week flown by! It's reveal day at Stuck on U Sketches!!  I'm excited to show you the layout I created  to show off the great sketch by Liz Qualman!  I had the pleasure of Guest Designing last year for Liz and had a blast working with her sketches! Be sure to check out her blog!

This layout is called "Wedded Bliss", and features my daughter and new son-in-law. I just love this photo!  I needed to take the color saturation down a bit so it worked better with the papers I had on hand, so in real life, the flowers are brighter.

                                             Here is the sketch by Liz, and you can tell I stuck pretty close to her design.  Here are some close ups.

I stamped on the letters for the word bliss with a word stamp and black Stazon ink.

I made the large plum colored flower with Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral die, and the tiny roses are from I am Roses, the others are by Prima.

I used some Dusty Attic chippies on 2 of the corners of the photo. I altered them by inking them frist with a violet ink, then I used Clear Distress Crackle Paint, and once that was dry I used a touch of plum ink and a whitish ink.

I used a Martha Stewart border punch of the 3 paper strips, and used a scalloped deco scissor on the matting of the 3 small photos.

I distressed the outer edges of the photo with a sanding block and inked the edges as well.

The leaves were made with my Heartfelt Creations Swirly leaves stamp and I used my Distress Stains and Rock Candy Distress Stickles for texture.

I did some doodling around the outer edge of the solid cardstock, and I made the black swirls with my Gypsy/Cricut.

Thanks for looking and please remember that this is your last chance to get your name in the drawn to win the blog candy that is being provided by Alda from Flying Unicorn!  Make sure your layout is new as of today and most of all, have fun!  Please check out the work of the other design team members!  Be Blessed!
