Wrapping Up a Wedding Card


I just discovered a new favorite technique and a new stamp company with some gorgeous stamps I just love. So Suzy Stamps has many beautiful stamps including the bride and groom and "Just Married" stamps on this card as well as many funny stamps. I made the background with a favorite new technique using cling wrap, Brusho Crystal Colours and glossy paper. I sprinkled blue Brushos on a piece of crinkled cling wrap, spritzed it with pearl glimmer mist and put a piece of glossy paper down into the cling wrap mess. I folded up the sides of the cling wrap and let the piece sit about 10 minutes.  When I removed the cling wrap, this marvelous background is formed. Here is a link to the video where I learned this technique. I dried the piece with a heat gun and stamped the bride, groom and just married stamps from So Suzy Stamps. I added some pearls for a necklace and to highlight the stamps.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at Papertake Weekly and Loves Rubberstamps.

Karen this is so beautifully vibrant with the blues and the touches of pearls just adds that perfect touch of elegance.
