Tips and Techniques
The sweet floral cluster includes Magnolia Flowers and an Ivory Mulberry Rose from the store along with a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers from my stash. I tucked a few Prima Pearls into the empty spots.
The soft Organza Rose Trim is so lovely. Every girl loves some bling, so I added a sparkling rhinestone to the center of each blossom.
The lovely Anemone Gaja Ornament chipboard is heat embossed with aged ivory embossing enamel, then the edges rubbed with Finnabair's Vintage Gold Wax. Don't be afraid to cut up your chippies. I snipped this one in half to extend out on each side of the cluster. The Scrapiniec Confetti Hearts include a ton of little hearts in three sizes. I heat embossed several in Raspberry and brushed with more of the gold wax.
Of course there needs to be a fluttering insect on any summery project. This Misz Masz Butterfly Chipboard Die Cut is embossed in aged ivory, then edged with raspberry and a touch of white gold wax over the body with a little rhinestone to add more bling.
The Violet Love background paper was dry brushed with white gesso, then stamped with two of the Agateria Grille stamps. I also added some spatter with Lindy's Gang Moonlit Mulberry Moon Shadow Mist and white drawing ink.
This delightful sentiment was cut from the 12 x12 Violet Love Paper Collection and edged with wisteria ink. The Anemone Fabian Chipboard Ornament is so perfect to anchor the sentiment.
Bambino Glue is used to adhere texture elements from the Prills and Finnabair Microbeads around the flowers to the Confetti Hearts, mica shards, rhinestones, and sequins scattered around the card for texture.
