This is one huge, and most wonderful wedding card. I think it is to the grandest scale I have done so far. Must be because we are only a week away from our sons big day! I think that I just might use this one for myself. I will have to think long and hard about what to write…
This card measures 11 1/4 x 3 3/4″, how about that! I used a sheet of 12 x 12 to put this one together. The front is layered with a large piece of dazzling diamond glimmer paper with a special water color panel for the card front. The lettering was done with the Larger Than Life Alphabet & Number stamp set. It is, sad to say, retiring. Along with this beautiful Lost Lagoon color.
I spent quite a bit of time moving ink along this piece. Painting, distressing, drying, and then repeating all of that until I liked what I saw. The stamping was simple. The first layer was done with lost lagoon and then again with silver encore ink. The result gave a shadow look, but it is still two dimensional and flat as can be. The flowers aren’t of course, and I love the look. Kind of like blossoms traveling in the wind. It will be interesting to try and create an envelope for this one, maybe it is too beautiful to put it in one. Hmmm….
Have a creative day!
