Thinking of You Heartfelt Creations

Hello all and happy Wednesday.  Today's Heartfelt Wednesday and I have an elegant card I made using the latest collection " Celebrate the Journey".  The stamped image was colored in with pastels...something new I've been playing with and having fun.  I know there is a lot more I'll learn about them but it's always fun to try new techniques and medium.

Directions: Stamp Collage stamp on plain card stock using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Distress the edges of the stamped image and layer on a plain black piece of card stock.  Stamp the image two more times on plain cardstock to use the flowers  a bit later on.  Color your image with pastels and blend the colors.  Once you have completed your base coloring spray with fixative/sealer. Color and fussy cut out the flowers from the other two stamped images.  Using your flower tools and molding mat curl the petals of the flowers in.  You can also pinch the tips of the petals with tweezers to add a bit more movement.  Using dries clear glue, attach two layers of petals to three of the flowers as shown on the card.  Seal the entire collage again with fixative/sealer. Add a ribbon bow and pearl the the front of the dress.  Die cut out two flourishes from designer card stock using the Grand Calibur.  Layer behind the collage and attach with Dries Clear Glue.  Run a small line of glue along the top and bottom edge and add pearls.  Cut a 5 x 7 designer paper base from the collection and using zip dries glue attach the collage down.  Finally cut a 5 1/4 x 7 1/4 black cardstock base for a small black edge. This will help to really make your image pop.  Mount your card on a plain card.
