Stamp Something - Fairytale

Your this weeks Stamp Something mission - should you accept it - is to create a fairy tale inspired project and our wonderful sponsor is Magnolialicious!

Who doesn't love fairytales? Especially the happy ending bit!

I'm saying it very quietly and with certain amount of surprise - I am actually totally happy with my own card and I think I'm falling head over heels for Magnolias again! Just look at the bride lovingly stroking the grooms cheek and the gorgeous background... It's actually two stamps together: LOVING BRIDE & GROOM and WEDDING ROSE ARCH. I think it has a wonderful feel of very relaxed Scandinavian summer wedding. It makes me so nostalgic. :)

And I am sending a big hug to wonderful, uber talented Tara who sent me some new Magnolia images thus being responsible for my recent Tilda-relapse!

Colouring is done with Copic markersSakura Stardust pens and Spica pens (meaning - it ssshhhhhparkles). I made the matching flowers myself using Marianne's Creatabilities dies.

Copic Markers:
Skin: E13/53/51/50
Roses: BG:49/45/11
Leaves: YG99/25
Ground: BG99/96, YG24/25/11/00, G0000
