This little guy is a new Elisabeth Bell stamp from Elphine House Australia. So far, I've done the Flower Girl, the Ring Bearer, the Bride, and now the Groom! These are SO cute!
Here is the front of the card:
Here is the inside of the card:
This is the second card this week where I used the La Creme paper. Actually, I did this card first and the Proverbs 3:5,6 card after that. I think these papers are so beautiful and elegant and striking. I love using them.
I colored the groom with my Prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I decided to add the yellow to go with the papers and break up the black and then the red for a nice accent. I was at Michaels the other day and picked up these red rose flowers on clearance in the wedding section...I love a bargain! They go perfectly with the roses on his hat and lapel! I just love it when things work out better than I think they will...thank you Lord!
