Emyfs has a great challenge this month over at Going Buggy.
The challenge is to make a card or project using Red, Gray and White and as I had a Ruby Wedding card to make colour choice was perfect for me. You might had already seen it on my desk yesterday when it was still a work in progress but it’s all finished now.
I started off by stamping the flourishes and some of the flowers directly onto the card stock.
My plan was to attach the die-cut with foam pads to make it stand out a bit from the card but I wanted the stamping on it to match up with the card so I had to think about how I was going to achieve it.
In the end I decided that my best plan of action was to lay a sheet of acetate over the card and positioned the die-cut no top where I eventually wanted it to be. This enabled me to line up the acrylic stamps with the image already stamped on the card…..result!
Next I stamped some extra flowers, painted them with Red Pearl Ex-Press watercolor and then decoupage them over the flowers already on the card, finishing them off with some diamantes and glitter glue.
I then added two little punched butterflies which I made bodies fir using gold wire and red seed beads and finally I finished off the card with a computer printed greeting, Red bow and stick pin.
