Kitchen Sink Stamps - Vintage Wedding

Happy Kitchen Sink Stamps Monday!  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you are enjoying this Memorial Day Holiday!  Today, I created a card and video using Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Wedding Couple, to create a Vintage Wedding card.  I have photos of my grandparents when they got married, printed in Sepia colors, and was inspired to recreate that vintage wedding look using the Bride and Groom.

Don't be intimidated with the Multi Step Stamping using 6 images.  Stamping them as I did to create a Sepia look is a breeze!  You can also use "spot stamping" to add color to the Flowers, by following the Tutorial Maria posted here.

Basic Grey came out with some wonderful papers in their Cappella Line that work perfect with these images, to create some wonderful Wedding/Anniversary cards.  I added some Flourish Pearls under my stamped panel, then some flowers cut from the Capella paper using the Tattered Floral Die by Tim Holtz.  The edges of the flowers are sponged with Chocolate Ink, popped up on dimensionals, then I added a Half Pearl to the centers.  The sentiment is also from this set, stamped in Chocolate.
