Getting a chance to be a part of the Altenew Blog hop got my creative juices flowing & I have another card to share based on their current challenge at the blog which is to pick a favourite challenge graphic from the past year & create a project based on it. I have gone with Amy's June Challenge. It's such a pretty palette & so perfect for the wedding.
I wanted to replicate the wedding bouquet graphic on my card so I decided to work with heat-embossing on vellum. In real life, this looks so beautiful. Unfortunately, I'm not able to capture the colours so well on camera :(
I stamped the flowers, leaves & foliage from the Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp set on some 40 lbs. vellum, heat-embossed it using a super fine white Embossing Powder & watercoloured the images using Tombow Brush Pens.
I created the background card panel using three shades of Distress inks - Shabby Shutters, Twisted Citron & Squeezed Lemonade by painting them with a brush on the panel. I then die-cut all the images using the coordinating Beautiful Day die.
I finished off the card by adding a sentiment which comes from the Altenew Vintage Roses set, another of my absolute favourites and I think the font is really sophisticated and went will with this card. I also added some Prima Marketing Glass Glitter in Platinum using some Multi Medium Matte & few paint splatters.
I hope you will like my card & the interpretation. Do let me know what you think of it.
Have a nice day everyone!
