Pretty Pink Wedding Congrats

Hello everyone, today I have a card that I created for Altenew's July Inspiration Challenge - Weddings and also Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

This is my first time using my new stamp set from Altenew - Persian Motifs. I absolutely love this stamp set and already have a few other cards stamped and ready to be completed.

I love how this card turned out. I used a new to me technique - heat embossing on vellum and coloring the images on the back side with Copic markers. After colouring I added Wink of Stella to the front side of the images and then fussy cut around the edge of the blooms before adhering to my A2 card base. A heat embossed sentiment and a few bitty rhinestones finished my card.

Here is the inspiration photo from Altenew:

  3. This is so pretty. I might have to get my Copics down and give them a try with this technique.
