'W' is for Wedding

The eighth letter in the The Craft Barn alpha challenge is 'W' but with the additional instruction to add circles to the background.  I didn't have to think long this time one and have chosen the word Wedding as my Sister is getting married this year and I am busy making the invites.

I started with the usual piece of 6x7 inch white card stock and punched the 2 holes on the correct side of the page so that I can eventually add it my book.  I glued the dictionary page to the card stock and then covered the whole page (excluding the word and definition) using the Ranger pearl acrylic paint dabber.  I stamped a bride and groom and a recipe for love in black ink and then added circles of gold Ranger acrylic paint using the dabber lid to create wedding rings.  I added some texture paint, spots of the pearl dabber for interest along with Dylusions white ink spray, Tattered Angels marshmallow glimmer mist and wrote some meaningful words on the background.   I doodled around the word and definition then covered with Tim Holtz rock candy crackle paint.  Finally I edged the page with the Ranger black acrylic paint dabber, added the appropriate Tim Holtz alphabet letter and stamped my chosen word onto black card stock.
Thanks for looking!
