Welcome to Release #22! This has been a long awaited release for me. If you saw yesterday's post, you'll know that we are releasing two images this time, both related to celebrations.. one graduate and one wedding couple! Yay! These important images were missing from the Sister Stamps family and now we finally have them! Yay!
My sister takes care with every image she creates. I requested a wedding couple awhile ago, but she couldn't get the image just right until now. She pulls references for inspiration to make sure she gets the kimono and hat just right. I love how they tuned out. Here's some samples I've made for some of our retailers.
I decided to color them up all the same, though I've found photos of other variations of the bride's kimono. I hand drew the pin stripes on the groom's kimono. It's hard to tell from the photo, but I used a pearl smooch to color in the bride's kimono and hat to give her a satin finish.
Each card is on a black card base with gold cardstock. Then I cut some satin finish paper and embossed it with this cherry blossom embossing folder that I got from Hanko. Love it! Didn't want to make the background too busy as it would take away from the image.
Then I took some of my new Memory box dies Tiffany Frame and and Chesapeake Circle and cut them using gold cardstock. I like how they frame the image. You can even place the couple to the side and add your sentiment inside the frame.
Here I tried mounting the couple in a landscape style. I like how it turned out!
