Always & Forever Wedding Card for Leaky Shed Studio

I've stepped away from mixed media today to share a wedding card created for Leaky Shed Studio. I wanted the card to have an elegant feel. The damask and heart shapes fit perfectly with this design. What is a wedding without bling? I've glittered my Leaky Shed Studio chipboard pieces to add an elegant sparkly touch to this card. 

Always & Forever

Tips and Techniques
Leaky Shed Studio has a large variety of styles in their chipboard. I wanted this card to have an elegant feel, so I selected this Large Damask piece to layer behind my flower. I'm always cutting my chipboard into pieces and this is no exception. I cut the damask into two pieces with the flower hiding the cut edges.

A tutorial for my Crushed Voile Peony can be found HERE.

Here's a close-up where you can see how glittered this is. It is such an easy technique. I painted the Large Damask piece with black gesso, but any coordinating paint will work. Once dry, I spread glue across the piece and sprinkled with fine black glitter. My favorite glue for glitter applications is Art Institute Designer Dries Clear, which really holds the glitter in place.

I also glittered one of the Medium #2 Hearts as an accent. I pulled out the older Enchanted collection from BoBunny to work with. Yes, the wedding colors include purple, which I've accented with. I've done lots of layering, stitching and even some fussy cutting here and inked some of the edges to highlight.

One final view.
