"A" The Arceneauxs

Now I had a friend of my friend that keeps me busy (LOL) call me to see if I could do something for a wedding shower gift.  The new couple does not have a house yet (so no decor to match).  She knew that the bridesmaids dresses are going to be red, but did not want to go with that.  She had seen some of my previous letters & wanted to go that route.  I told her about the anniversary one that I had done, see HERE & she loved the idea.  The shower invite had several shades of blue so we decided on that color scheme and this is what turned out.  She said the bride loved it & it was her favorite color.  Don't you just love it when you don't know exactly how to do something & it just turns out perfectly.
I used my Gypsy and Cricut to design & create this project.
I painted the letter with acrylic paint & spritzed it with some home made glimmer mist (pearlizing medium, warm water, & Mod Podge in a spray bottle).
Then I sealed it with Krylon Preserve It.
Name, Est., & Numbers:  Lyrical Letters
Bride & Groom & Rings:  Wedding
Sign Shape:  Lacy Labels
I painted the rings with metallic gold acrylic paint & sealed with Krylon Preserve It.
I added detail lines on the bride & groom with ultra fine Sharpie markers.
I used a piece of tulle to add to the bride's veil & some I Rock Crystals as a decoration to the veil.

Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed. Lori
