Pink wedding card

Today I'm showing a card for the wedding. The wedding was actually in August, but the couple was honeymooning, so I just got the chance to wish them all the best. And the colors of the wedding were white and pink (I'd evern say magenta). And so there's the card:

It is absolutely 100% handmade, though not archive quality…
Some closeups:

The centerpiece is a newly wed couple. I was inspired by Ty Wilson’s posters, and used tiny paper stripes to make an alike looking picture – almost quilling. And some pencil strokes to color the pic. The bride’s belt is made of satin ribbon. For the bouquet I used kids’ clay called ‘i-clay’, and a feather (from the pillow) colored with ink.


With this card I'm entering a few challenges:
-A pocket full of posies challenge - Floral fantasy; roses embossed on vellum, rose pricked on the ivory background, roses in bride's bouquet. (19/09)
Скрапстудия Sun House - задание 4, "Миллион, миллион, миллион алых роз". Роз, правда, не миллион, и они не алые, но розы ведь! =) (19/09)
-Pear Tree Designs - Challenge 17, pink! Pink of all shades is present =) (19/09)
-Cutie Sunday - Pretty in pink; well, pink is pink =) Or rose. Or magenta =) (19/09)
-Stampin' Susters in Christ - real or faux stitching. I used real stitching with white thread on the pink frame. (18/09)
ScratFIT - Go Green! In this card I did not use any special scrap stuff. The frame is created with the help of foam sealants, covered with magenta paper. The "beads" on the lady's corset are actually millet (yes, edible thing!) covered with nail polish. Charms are hand made out of recycled wire, filled with the same nail polish. Greenery in bride's bouquet is a colored feather I got from my pillow. And the whole centerpiece is surrounded with rose-petals frame done in the technique of tissue stippling. To achieve that colorful irregular effect I had to color a plain white facial tissue with beetroot juice - couldn't think of anything greener %) (30/09)
-Cupcakes inspiration - Challenge 76, be inspired by a wedding picture:

Pink satin ribbon, lots of fluff, white dress and wedding theme - I suppose I'm in =) (19/09)


All the patterns I used (stitching, pricking, embossing, quilling) I made myself =)

  3. Очень красиво! Разглядывала жениха и невесту, так и не поняла - это квиллинг или нет?

  4. Спасибо, Ольгусенок =)
    А вот я сама не знаю, квиллинг или нет =) Вроде квиллинг обязывает закручивать завитки, а тут завиток всего один, а остальное - просто изогнутые полосочки, приклеенные торцом. Я бы сказала "одиночный квиллинг" %)

  16. Beautiful card! I've tried quilling, but am not very good at it (probably too impatient!). You are fantastic! Great take on the photo inspiration, as well! And of course, your stitching is perfect! Thank you for joining us this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ! Hope to see you back again next week!
