Wedding Day


I'm popping in with a card i made several months ago i think! I remember when i was making this card i wanted to use some pattern paper and a new stamp set, Painted Flowers from the new stamp company Altenew.

It started with the pretty pink and grey flower pattern paper i found in my stash. I die cut a desktop file die from watercolor paper. I used grey ink to stamp just the outlined flowers. I also stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Ori Kami in grey ink.

Then i played with my ink pads to get a pink that would match the flowers on the pattern paper. I tried to be 'messy,' you know that not perfect look, which is really hard for me because i like smooth shading and coloring!! I also colored the leaves grey like the pattern paper flowers.

I added the pattern paper to my card base and then found 3 grey strips in my extra do-dad bowl that matched!! Score!! I added them to my card along the bottom, then added the stamped and colored file with foam dots. Last i added a few grey enamel dots!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
