I am in love with this card! I don't know if you are really supposed to say that or not, but I just do! It is for a young friend's bridal shower. I created the "patterned paper" with a script sentiment stamp and a damask stamp that I stamped off on scrap paper before stamping it on the panel.
Here is a close up of this gorgeous image. I was at a loss as to how to "color" the veil part since I knew it should look different than the unveiled part of the image. Then I had the genius idea to use vellum. I cut out just the veil section and layered it over the original image after I colored it. It is sooooo perfect!! Subtle, but if you study it, you can see the effect. Then I used a viva pearl pen to add little pearls to the veil. Some antique silver frantage embossing finished it off.
