That's a big letter | Fancy Friday Blog hop

A large letter C.
Made out of shimmery pink powder ribbon by Stampin' Up!
Adhered onto the ripped up tear tape in bussels.
Later secured by machine stitching.

All this was the starting point but a beautiful wedding card for the Caines Family.

My Fancy Family is bringing large fonts to you.  Although I wanted to dig out my oversized alpha dies when I sat at my white desk I saw the wood textured paper and magic dust started to spring from my fingers.

It's odd how inspiration comes about but I think I had all the right elements laying in front of me this time. The ribbon. The pearls. The wood textured paper. I had distressed water color stained paper from a "rejected" project to my right and linen thread to my left.

A final touch was to use my Stampin Up! chaulk marker and made "fake splatters".
Oh yes, I cheated.
They are fake splatters.
But it gets better.
Over top my carefully curated dots, I put fine tip glue dots over top giving them dimension and making them look even more real.

... so yeah, maybe sometimes I can be a little nit picky...
... but only when time allows.

Now it's time for you to see my friend, Cindy Schuster. Prepare to be amazed. Quite simply - as always.
