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.
