Here's a card for a wonderful couple getting married in August. Phew, good to be early with a card! Lili's Little Fairies Challenge this week is "Transport", and what an elegant image for the occasion. It reminds me of the carriage ride we had at our wedding. I'd show you a picture, but that was before digital, so...pretend this is us.
The background papers are from The Paper Company. They are a sort-of shiny linen. I don't know the pearl embossed panel, it is from my stash. I wanted to keep the color subtle so I shaded the image, Wedding Carriage, with Copics and
blended the edges with Ranger Distress Ink Old Paper and Black Soot. I
added Glossy Accents to the flowers and used Doodlebug pink flock. I
added a darker pink with Copics. I added Crayola white pearl glue to the ribbons and glitter glue to the veil and gown. I then spritzed the image and paper
lace with Tsukineko Sparkle Shimmer Spritz. Too bad all the shimmer doesn't show up on camera. My first time around I colored the leaves green, but I redid the whole thing because it wasn't subtle enough. The digital die cuts are Elegant Double Posts, and Scroll Banner Layered from Silhouette. The ribbons and gems are from my stash. I shaded the banner with Copics. The sentiment is from Hot Off the Press, Tiny Words/Images. I curved it on the block to follow the shape of the banner and embossed it in black.
