Wedding flowersPosted: April 20, 2015
This week on the Penny Black blog the design team are sharing projects which display the versatility of the latest PB release, Time to Celebrate. Over the past few weeks we have shared Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and graduation cards but the stamps and dies can be used for so much more. I picked out the pretty flower stamp, Centerpiece to create a wedding card.
I stamped the floral part of the stamp twice, leaving the vase out altogether. I embossed the design in silver pearl powder which has a subtle sheen to it then watercoloured with festive berries distress stain on the petals and aged mahogany distress stain on the flower centers. The tiny leaves I coloured with a memento new sprout marker. Around the edge of the embossed flowers I painted tumbled glass distress stain, feathering it out to nothing with extra water. I chose to pick up the same blue in the card base and sentiment panel by using PB Clear Skies mix and match paper. It is not obvious in the photo but I coloured over all the flowers with a clear wink of stella marker which gave them all a soft sparkly shimmer. The delicate silver mat is actually fabric interfacing from France. A fellow card making friend brought it back and it was the perfect addition for a little silver accent on the wedding card.
I have just returned from a great weekend teaching at Bizzy B Stamp & Scrap in Toronto and will share some photos from the classes soon.
