Today's post is made for the Maja Design official blog, which I am hosting today.
the theme there is WEDDING.
I am sure many of you have gotten the lovely Vintage Summer Basics by now, and felt the excellent quality and seen the beautiful patterns. I am in love:)
For today I have made a wedding bookcard.
A dear colleague of mine at work is going to USA (!!!) to attend a wedding there.
And she asked me to make the card.
I have used the pattern paper called 1922 for this card. I have used both sides of the paper. I have used 1921 for the Wrapped Heart tag and where I have used the Scalloped Dotted Lace (DooHickeys from Magnaolia) on the frame.
The stamps I have used are all from Magnolia's Wedding Collection 2010.
On the front I have the Loving Wedding Couple, and inside the card I have used Sitting Wedding Tilda and Sitting Wedding Edwin.
Under you can see some flower details, and two butterflies which I have made with a Martha Stewart punch. I have fasten some cheese cloth behind the frame, and it is as all the paper sewed with my sewing machine and inked with Distress Ink pad-Walnut stain. I use Tim Holtz blending tool for this. A regular sponge is fine, but when I use the TH blending tool I don't get any ink on my fingers.
Down in the corner of the book I have placed several flowers.
And on them I have fastened a beautiful key charm from Hjerteboden. I have fastene it with tacky glue.
The white dots I have around the edge are made with Liquid Pearls-White Opal.
I have also decorated the inside of the book. My colleague wasn't going to have a gift inside the card anyway, so I had my hands free:) Behind Tilda and Edwin there is a heart covered with mostly roses.
And over the heart filled with flowers I have put a banner with the wedding couple's names.
To fasten Tilda and Edwin I have simply glued their feet in one of the folds in the book.
I have added Liquid Pearls to her hair, and also Crackle Accents to the flowers on both.
On the other side I have placed a paper to write a greeting on.
When you close the book, it looks like a bookmark coming up:)
Their initials. Made with the Tim Holtz Vintage Market alphabet. I cut them out from cardboard, then painted them with white gesso, then crackle paint-picket fence, then inked the edges a little with walnut stain, before eventually adding Crackle Accents to them:) All that work for just two letters..:)
Here is both the front and back.
At last I can mention that the images are coloured with Distress Markers and Distress Ink, reinkers.
For Tilda's dress I have simply only used Tattered Rose (Markers) and then used Walnut Stain (Distress Ink) for the shadows in the dress. After coloring I have added Stickles-Star Dust on her dress.
For the shadows in Edwin's outfit, I have used Pumice Stone.
Their hair is first colored with Antique Linen (Markers), then I have used Walnut Stain (Distress Ink) on the the dark places and stripes.
For their skin I have only used Markers. First I color with Antique linen on the edges, and drag the color out with a brush. Then I do the same with Tattered Rose. And at last I use the color Tea Dye on the dark places, like under the hair in their forehead.
