Weddings!!























This months theme over on the Hero Arts Blog is Weddings and Congratulations and the featured technique is Water colouring. This is a card I made for the wedding theme.  The flower is stamped onto vellum and then embossed in gold then I have coated it with Rock Candy Crackle paint it has created this lovely shimmery silky effect. The background is my old favourite Classic Fabric design stamped with Old Paper Distress ink I have then added the Envelope pattern round the edges and distressed slightly.
The ribbon and lace have been stitched together and the sentiment is pop dotted to the card for dimension.








Its turned into a wet miserable day here today although I musn't complain the garden definately needs the rain.



Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps CL488 Congrats. CG245 Classic Fabric. CG134 Large Flower. CL360 Best Wishes. S5507 Envelope Pattern.  Old Paper Distress Ink. Rock Candy crackle paint. Ribbon lace and pearls.
