Card For The Bride.

Really struggled to get this card looking right, I don't normally use pastels and I'm not that confident with watercolouring! There were a few incarnations of it before I setttled with this one. Never hurts to have a restart! :)

I used white heat embossed stamped images from a Hunkydory Clearly Stamps Set called Celebrations. Once embossed I used distress inks like watercolours to colour the images and backgrounds. I also used inks to make the backing papers.

Distress Inks: Peeled Pain, Shaded Lilac and Worn Lipstick.

I printed my text (in Edwardian Script) and then added the banner shapes by hand in lilac pen. The bride one was stuck across the middle of the flower heart.

Inside, I used the champagne glass from the stamp set and cut it out after watercolouring it. I added hearts from the stamp set, sequins and glossy accent bubbles.

I repeated the sequins and bubbles on the blank area left for the personal message. I really like the flute, hearts and bubbles, and might reuse that idea the next congrats card I make.
