Welcome back to another post here made for Creative Embellishments. Tis the season of weddings and I have a number of them this summer. I was asked to make a shabby set, My friend Roberta gave me some guidelines and let me go from there. She usually gives me free range to do and play how I want.
Here is the video of the creative process:
After initially finding the paper collection I wanted to use, I started with some subtle stamping with the Distress Crackle Stamp and the Distress Moroccan Stamp. I just add the little extra effect and I enjoy how it pops through certain pastes. I never really know the look I will get.
I added all my lovely die-cut embellishments along with some flowers and pearls and fit the “From This Moment” title on the inside.
I used the Flourish 28 in the clusters. I used a multi-textual embossing powder with bits of mica flakes to add to the feel and warmth of the card and tag.
Here are a few close-ups.
On the back of the tag, I found some old song lyrics paper that evolved around love . I used a thick crackle glaze again and covered the back with Black antiquing cream. This doesn’t cure so I wipe it back off with a wet kitchen towel to get that dark aged look.
I thank you all for stopping by today. And enjoy the upcoming summer season with all that it has to come with it.
