Wedding Card for Cardabilities Sketch #86



I thought creating ATC's would satisfy my need for working with small things and details, but when I accidently happened to find this sketch featured at  "Cardabilities," I was immediately inspired and smitten with the idea of creating a card. And, coincidently I was going to need one for an impending wedding.

I set out to create a background spritzing various mists on my mat and applying the cardstock on the puddles of the mist and gently applied pressure to the cardstock to pick up those colors.  After the mists dried, a script stamp was applied in various places, and finally a stencil was applied using light molding paste. Below are some close ups of the background work.



I so enjoyed creating this card for a very dear couple, and Cardabilities has certainly inspired me to create more.  Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thank you Patricia. It may look like chipboard because of the depth that highlighting produces. I used some Pewter Perfect Pearl Mist around the stenciling work to make the design pop a little bit.

  13. Art inspires and art also excites. This image surely gives me an idea how beautiful the actual wedding card might have been. I loved the pictures you have shared. Wish there were more card makers like this in India too. I wish to have a nice wedding card for my marriage also.
