I have been a very naughty girl....I have spent more money than I care to admit at the lovely sirstampalot! I have bought rather a lot of these gorgeous new wedding magnolias. Well I still have 30 wedding cards to make, so whats a girl to do??!!!
I LOVE this image so much, as soon as I saw it I knew I needed it!!! as I was making this card it was reminding me of a time when I was 6 and my little sister was 4 and we were bridesmaids for one of my mums friends. We carried a little basket of flowers just like this little sweetie. there are some really gorgeous photos of us all in the park, the photographer wanted us all to sit on the grass and spread our dresses out, but my little sister refused. She had been threatened that she was not to get her tights dirty, and she was just doing what she was told!!!....I feel a scrapbook page coming on, but first I must get these wedding cards done......I am just so slow!!
Anyway back to my card...I have stamped this out several times to create a decoupage, I stamped on plain card, but also on pearl papers to give the dresses a sheen. I have covered the card in some vellum that I had. The embossed detail has been created using "Spellbinders Impressabilities - flourish" I have done the flowers from the same pearl papers as the dresses I used "spellbinders shapeabilities - flower creations 3" and a small flower punch. then I have blinged it up with gems and pearls.
I wanted to keep it quite simple. Also I love the white on white look, but I have never been brave enough to try it for myself.
This is my entry for:
Cardvarks - wet or dry embossing
Copic creations - other paper ( I used copics to colour on pearlised paper to create the dresses.
As always thanks for looking
