Mackintosh Bride

Hello everyone, I hope your summer is going well.

I created the card below for one of my niece's wedding using her bridal party colour of deep purple.  This design is the same lay-out and stamps as a previous card that you might recall.  I used a stamp from Chocolate Baroque's gorgeous Mackintosh Beauty set.

At the suggestion of a friendly & talented blogger Chrissie, I'm joining in at Try it Tuesday as their current challenge theme is 'In the Frame'.   


I stamped the bride on designer paper and coloured with Prisma pencils.  The frame is a die cut by Spellbinder.

I made the rose using Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret and Bella Rose sets.  I stamped the flower layers with a fragment from Chocolate Baroque's Texture Fragment set before shaping and layering.  I have the stamp set that goes with the Vintage Floret but I find it easier to just random stamp with texture.  Heartfelt Creation's newer sets are in one piece (die and stamps) which are easier to work with.  I rubbed Inka Gold on the flower when it was finished.   It's so much fun playing with die cut flowers. 


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley
