From Birthday To Wedding



This card started off in my head as a birthday card, but then I had the bright idea of putting ribbon on the car to turn it into a bridal car, and it became a wedding card for a reception that we were attending.  The image is from Stampington, with light watercolouring to mimic a hand-coloured photo.

The background is patterned paper with a wash of gesso to knock the colour back, then stencilled circles using modelling paste, topped with a blue gelato wash.  Vellum die-cut leaves, fibre, gauze, a ribbon flower and stamens finish it off.

I'm entering this into Virginia's View - All About Textures

  2. A wedding card that will forever treasured not only because it is a true work of art but also because it was made by your hands, from your heart! The modelling paste circles and the gauze 'ruffle' are so cool!
