All things grow with love – wedding card

Hiya!

Today I have for you a wedding card – quite simple and perhaps not very wedding-y (no white lace!) but here it is.

I used a canvas cardstock as a card base as it adds a nice texture. I created the background with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours. This was the first time I used them and I fell in love. They’re so smooth and creamy and working with them was a pleasure even for such an amateur as myself.

I added some paint splotches to the card and then stamped the floral motive on a dried background with three shades of ink. I added sentiment and heat embossed it in silver. Then I embellished the card with some mini pearls and sequins.

Thanks for looking!

Unusual wedding card

Hey! Today I show you the card I made for my friend’s wedding.

I knew my friend wouldn’t like a traditional card so I tried to do something a little bit different. I used a lot of  patterns but  not too many hearts and personalized the card with a date stamp.
