We were invited to a beautiful young couple's wedding this week, and the colours and picture just inspired me to make this wedding card. All the invitations and wedding stationery was adorned with lovely watercolour flowers so I wanted to use that theme in the card. Initially I was going to fussy cut pieces and incorporate them, but in the end I only added them to the inside, although I did cut their names and date from the 'save the Date' card and added them to the front.
The front bouquet was made using the babywipe technique with just a few drops of Coral and Cherry inks. I was really surprised and pleased with how lovely they look together.
The blossoms are from the Beautiful bouquet bunch set.
I cut 2 sets of stems - one from Artichoke and one from shimmery White card which I then watercoloured with Artichoke ink. I like the depth and difference it gives with double layers.
The other easy way to get depth and dimension is using the Embossing Folders. I LOVE the dynamic wood planks and have used it on both the Whisper White card base and on the Timber DSP - it looks AMAZING in real life, and just takes the paper to a whole new level.
As I said I did use part of their original invitation on the inside- here's a little peak
And here's the beautiful couple with the watercolour painting by a local artist which we gave them.
Next on the hop this fortnight is Lou, I wonder what amazingness she'll have for us today?
Don;t forget to share a picture of the projects you are inspired to make using these colours on our Facebook page.
Have a creative week!
