On Your Wedding

Hello everyone!! I made a card today that I w anted to share with you all.

This card was inspired by a wreath I made for a wedding. I don't have a picture to share with you all. I used stocking flowers (something like these) and leaves for one side of the heart and for the other half, I used golden strings. I drew a rough outline of a heart with a pencil. To start with, I wanted the banner to be on the front, so I gold embossed the banner from Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and the Extras first. I took the words 'on your wedding' from the same set and assembled tham so that it would fit into the banner (I had to bend the 'wedding' to match the curves of the banner - you can see this post where I did the same)Then I stamped the small Azalea flowers from the Power Poppy - Azaleas stamp set repeatedly on one half of the heart and gold embossed it. The other half of the heart, I traced with versamark pen and gold embossed it.

I used distress ink ripe persimmon to watercolor on the flowers. This is not a watercolor paper. I used Georgia Pacific 110 lb paper from Walmart. But it did good for watercoloring. I took care not to use too much water and used only little for blending. The paper didn't warp. For the leaves I used distress inks crushed olives and squeezed lemonade. For the banner I used Tsukineko VersaMagic chalk ink - sea breeze.

So what do you think of this card?
Thanks for stopping by. Do tell me your thoughts!!
