Everything Beautiful


I scanned this card and maybe should have used the camera instead to show off the flower better.  It is a Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 image... I stamped it on white cardstock with Versamark ink, used Sticky Powder to emboss it and then pressed on composition gold leafing... I can't remember exactly which kind of leafing this is (I have it in a box, no label) but it has a variety of colors in it.  I also did a second one of just the flower part, not the stem so I could cut it out and pop it on top for dimension.  I colored the white cardstock with Distress Ink barn door, sprayed it with water, dried it and edged the piece with brushed corduroy and then black.  The music is old music paper made to look even older with antique linen ink and brushed corduroy around the edges and also stamped with Studio 490 circles background image with Archival Ink coffee.  Scripture stamp is from Our Daily Bread Designs stamped on white cardstock with Archival Ink jet black and again I used antique linen and brushed corduroy.  The butterflies are punched from red cardstock and stamped with Studio 490 dots background image using Archival Ink coffee.  Gold sticky back pearls on the butterflys and a translucent goldish color sticky back gem on the flower.

Gorgeous Wanda! I love the composition of it all and I bet that gold leafing is really something in real life.

Wow! Absolutely Lovely!! I really like the circle background over the music; fills up all the otherwise empty space that drives me nuts!
