Here is what I came up with. After I finished my card I realised that it actually met the criteria for 2 challenges! Must have had them in the back of my mind.
The Just Add Ink #281 challenge for this week is to add your 3 favourite colours. I have used Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe and Very Vanilla. I just love these colours together and think they make a great modern wedding card.
A new challenge site that you should check out is the Global Design Project. Their challenge this week #GDP004 is to case the designer. You can use anything on the card as inspiration. I have based my card on the colour scheme (loosely) and the layout. Here is the card designed by Louise Sharp for the challenge.
I started with watercolour paper and did a wash using an aqua painter and some ink from the lid of my Mint Macaron ink pad. After it had dried I stamped some little spots that are part of the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set. It just gives a bit of interest and definition. The love heart is from You're So Sweet and was cut out using the heart from the coordinating Mini Treat Bag thinlits. 'Wishing you' was added from the Holly Jolly Greetings set. After adding some Linen thread for a hanger, gold thread for added oomph and a Blossom Accent to the top my card front was finished.
The card is a normal A5 folded in half with 2.5 cm cut off from the front edge. I layered Venetian Crochet trim and Mint Macaron Dotted Lace trim on the underside of the front.
Needless to say that my craft desk is buried somewhere under all of the items I've used or thought I may use!
