Elegant Wedding Card

Ooooo! There's a doozy of a new challenge just posted today at The Card Concept. It's filled with glamor and pops of red and feathers!

Since I love all of these things, I was excited to take on the inspiration image!

I reeeallllllly wanted to incorporate feathers, but alas! - my black chicken finally gave up the goat (yes, that was a barnyard pun) and so I was all out of stock of black feathers.

Instead, I decided to play with the bold red blooms and work in that black and white damask wrap.

I stamped a big ol' flowy poppy from the Penny Black XYZ stamp set and colored a portion of it in with Dina Wakely Scribble Sticks.

Let's pause for a second to let me exclaim my LOVE for these scribble sticks. Initially I bought them thinking that they would be just like Distress Crayons or Gelatos, but they are not even close. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that these are my new all-time favorite coloring medium of all time.

The scribble sticks act as like a cocaine-fueled watercolor crayon. Meaning they are super dope. They can write on canvas on TOP of acrylic paint, too! I'd highly recommend and if you're interested in trying them out for yourself, Amazon has them on sale for $20.99. *affiliate link

Once you scribble on a marginal amount of color, just use a waterbrush to pull out the color. Insta-shading and fewer harsh lines or coloring required than watercolor pencils. 

I added a sentiment from the Unity Love is Grand sentiment set because wedding season is upon us and I need to do some serious stocking up on some lovey dovey designs. 

Some glittery black damask paper, a lacy die cut from Spellbinders and some crinkle ribbon from Verve later - voila! 

I hope you'll all go and play along with The Card Concept's latest challenge because I can't wait to see what you'll make!

I'm also going to play along with some awesome challenges:
