My beautiful niece and god-daughter is getting married in less than two weeks. Where did the time go, seems like just yesterday I was holding her in my arms and now she's all grown into a beautiful young woman - inside and out.
For this wedding card I had loads of inspiration from this CAS(E) this sketch. I just loved the big bold ampersand and knew I had to incorporate it into my design.
I found this picture on my niece's FB page and thought it may have something to do with the invitations, which I still hadn't seen. As I live on the other side of the world they didn't send it as I have had my flight booked for ages anyway (wouldn't miss it for the world).
I had bought a new rose die earlier that day and so I started cutting out roses of various shades of pink and cream.
The ampersand I cut out with my Silhouette. I cut 4 and stacked them to give some rigidity for the embossing and enamelling. I started with a pink embossing powder, sprinkled a little WOW! Metalline Red and later some Sakura Tempera Powder (Pale Gold), interspersed with applications of UTEE to give layers of gold and pink. Here's an attempt at catching the lovely gold and pinks.
I did the same with the C and B. I used the WPlus9 Folk Art alphabet for these and again stacked up 4 of each to give them some body.
I will also be entering this card in the following challenges
|Anything Goes With Dies Monthly Challenge|
|Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Clean and Simple|
|CAS-ual Fridays CFC#156|
