Congratulations Jenny and Jason!

Today it’s Jenny and Jason’s wedding day! Jenny is one of our wonderful, bubbly hostesses in the Hero Arts Flick group and Tami has organised a surprise virtual wedding card shower for the happy couple.

Tami had suggested using a something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue theme. So I tried to incorporate all of these into the card in some way.

Congratulations Jenny and Jason!
Stamps - Heart Winged Butterfly & Fabulous Flourish (Hero Arts), Congratulations (Docrafts)

Old – Congratulations stamp
New – Fabulous Flourish stamp
Borrowed – the smaller pearls on the butterflies are borrowed off a top!
Blue – broken china distress ink

To start with I embossed the flourish and sentiment in white on watercolour paper, applied broken china distress ink and spritzed lightly with water. I white embossed the butterflies on vellum and embossed parts of the wings again using an embossing pen and stardust embossing powder. Then I added pearls to the bodies. The little heart pearls from Hero Arts are one of my favourite embellishments so I just had to add them beside the sentiment!

Congratulations Jenny and Jason!

Jenny and Jason, congratulations on your wedding day! Wishing you all of the very best as you look forward to a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness together!
