I will be the first to admit, I have been totally slacking when it comes to the TTIC challenges…I have missed more than I care to admit (darn ‘real life job’), but I COULD NOT bare to miss this one. Breaking Dawn was on of my favs in the series, partly because Edward and Bella finally said “I do”.
Margie asked us to focus on the Wedding for this weeks Twilight Tuesday.com challenge and provided us with some inspiration as well with this photo
I know that red, white and black have become the unofficial colours of Twilight, but I don’t picture Edward and Bella’s wedding like this.
I see soft, romantic colours, and I think blue would be a big part of it because Edward loves Bella in blue. We know that Alice kept roses as part of the theme, and so in creating my piece this week, I knew I was going to use the SU Fifth Avenue rose stamp.
I wanted to do something a little different, and looked around my apartment for inspiration. I really wanted to make what we Italians call bonboneirri, or the ‘giveaways’ from the wedding. I may still do that, but I came up with this idea in the meantime.
I created a Unity candle for Edward and Bella.
I followed this very simple tutorial at Splitcoaststampers ; who knew tissue paper, wax paper, stamps and a heat gun is all you need! oh, and candle of course.
Here’s a close up:
This is another SU stamp, and one that I’ve used before for a TTIC challenge, for a wedding card that I thought Bella would give to Edward. I did think at first to make the candle match the card, but I wasn’t sure white satin ribbon on an ivory candle would look so good.
So I used chocolate satin ribbon because I think it goes so well with the blue flowers.
Margie also asked us:
What are your favorite things in a wedding? and/or most memorable ‘in real life’ or movie/tv wedding you’ve ever seen…?
My favourite things in a wedding…I like the tradition of all of it, the exchanging of vows, and rings and seeing the groom’s face when he sees his bride for the first time.
My most memorable ‘in real life’ wedding would have to be my friends Alison and Jamie’s wedding, last summer; I was a bridesmaid, and it was a great party!
*whispers* although technically, I don’t remember much after dinner….. I told you it was a great party!
Make sure to check out everyone else’s submissions this week!
Ciao for now,
