Lotstodo Week 36 - Tissue Paper


We were having a wooden spoon swap on Lotstodo Forum, which Ang organised, so I started to play with wooden utensils. For this piece I ended up using a spoon and a spatula. I cut their clothing from card and painted it. I added lace, ribbon, beads and a flower to the bride, a bit of gold netting for a vail, a bit of ribbon and a fancy shape coloured with gold acrylic and some liquid pearls for her tiara. Her hair is espresso acrylic paint. The grooms hair is black wool. Both of their faces were stamped onto tissue paper and mod podge was used to stick them down. A piece of 12 x 12 paper was stuck to a piece of corrugated for stability and they were both siliconed onto it. With one of the offcut pieces I die cut 'I DO ...' using the round table sizzix set of alphabets and attached it to the bottom with a piece of ribbon.
