Peony Wedding Card

Today I have a card for the June Inspiration Challenge at Altenew. Here is the pretty inspiration photo:
and here is my card:

I recreated the texture and sparkle at the top of the wedding dress using a stencil and modeling paste and then sprinkling some chunky glitter on the paste while it was still wet. I cut the panel, edged the bottom with a piece of silver glitter tape and mounted it on my card base with a piece of fun foam.

I stamped the floral images from Peony Bouquet  with Versa Mark onto cold press watercolour paper, heat embossed with clear EP and then coloured them with Peerless Watercolours. The leaves were stamped and inked on white cardstock, with some Wink of Stella on the smaller leaves. My sentiment, from Persian Motifs, was heat embossed with silver onto a black cardstock diecut. A few mini pearls coloured with a black Copic marker finished the card.
