I have to say that picture does not do justice to this card...I took many pictures but neither one could capture every detail to it's fullest :( The pink color in the picture looks dark, but in reality it is super soft and light. I tried taking pictures at different locations and with different light, but nothing seemed to work. :(
I created this shabby chic wedding card using 12" x 6" piece of 140lb water coloring paper. I love the sturdiness and thickness of that paper and try to use in on all my cards as the base...
I added texture paste to the next layer using the Damask Flourish Prima stencil and once the texture paste was dry, I covered it with a layer of Gesso.
I distressed the edges and added some liquid pearls to the top corners. The sentiment was stamped onto a fancy tag diecut using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and then I covered the tag with a thin layer of Picket Fence Crackle Paint. As you can see there is another fancy tag die cut underneath it. I added some liquid pearls to that ensemble too...
The dress was made of gauze, card stock doily border cutout, tulle, embroidered ribbon and a corsett cut out embellished with heat embossed flourish and liquid pearls.
One more look at the finished card...
