Glasgow Wedding

Have you seen the new stamps at Chocolate Baroque this month? Oh my goodness they are absolutely gorgeous, there are two new sets of images, Mackintosh Beauty and Mackintosh Windows and some fab sentiments in the most gorgeous fonts too. This is is my first sample using them and I used both Mackintosh Beauty and Mackintosh Windows to make this card (you can find them here)

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured with Graph'It Markers, I've added a little stickles to the centre of the roses and some faux gems in the corners. I've distressed the edges and layered the image up on black card. I added the lovely rose heart from the Mackintosh Beauty set, again coloured with Graph'It Markers.

The background was made with distress inks, I used Spun Sugar, Evergreen bough and a little Iced Spruce. I used tiny amounts of ink on my blending mat and spritzed with lots of water to get a very muted background. Once this ink was dry I overstamped with some of the Mackintosh Windows, stamping very lightly to give a hint of the design here and there. I've gone to town with lots of lace, ribbon, some rolled ribbon roses and some pretty bead string from my stash.

I decorated the inside to match, but kept to a very subtle colour palette, I made this before the new sentiments were released so I may have to make another lol. I really enjoyed making this card as these stamps are so pretty. I even decorated a box to match

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  5. Your muted background is delightful with the way you have overstamped it using the Glasgow windows & I love the way your pearly embellishing echoes the bead strings on the image. Your inside is very classy & striking with the muted tones in keeping with your front. I particularly like the way your sentiment covers part of the image.
