I had this wedding cake topper sitting in a drawer and decided to give it a makeover. It's perfect for Valentine's! And I love the pink/black color combo - so glamorous!
I used Tattered Angels Wedding Pink Glimmer Mist mixed together with gesso to paint the dress - I wanted it to look gauzy & textured. Iridescent Silver was brushed on top for some added shimmer. I used a small piece of a flowered tissue paper I had to cover her shoe.
For his jacket, I tore pieces of Damask tissue paper and decoupaged it on using matte gel. I painted his shoe/tie black with a watered-down acrylic - I wanted it to look imperfect & a little artsy. I colored his boutineer and the flowers in her hair with Merlot Gold Glimmer Mist. For the final touches, I added her necklace, a rhinestone on her finger, and her veil.
