Romantic Hues



Its well past midnight and I am still posting this Wedding Card! I am afraid I did not manage to post it earlier. I have created this card based on a sketch provided by Artfully Ila. I must say I loved the sketch but I did have a hard time finishing it off, lol! This card also fits the Papertake Weekly Challenge 'All that Glitters'. I used a lovely purple paper with flowers having glitters for stems, hope it shows in the photograph.

Materials:

Black and white card stock
Black dotted Ribbon
Avec Craft Pack (Purple and White - bought from the Netherlands)
Papermania Fabric Flowers
Papermania Everyday Brad Tower
Papermania Wedding Couple
Faber Castell Water colours and Oil Pastels
Pebeo Parma Pearl Touch

How To:

  1. Cut a black square card to measure 16 by 16 and a smaller white card leaving a black border showing. Cut the purple backing paper slightly smaller from the white card stock.
  2. Cut two strips of white pearled papers to partially cover the top and right hand sides of the card.
  3. Stamp the image and colour it. Cut it out and stick to a black rectangle backing paper. Print the sentiment on acetate and attach to black card stock. Attach everything to the black cardstock fixing the ribbon between the black card stock and white pearled paper.
I am afraid I'll have to try and take better pictures tomorrow. Would love to hear what you think and thanks for stopping by!
