I wanted to design a transition from one medium to another and one colour to another across the card. I used white modelling paste and the poppy and peony mask to create the base of the card and distressed it with Tim Holtz vintage photo distressing ink. I then white embossed the poppies and peonies over tea dye, broken china and peacock feathers and used my Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black to create the top layer.
It was mr. everythingshetouches who suggested adding a message to the front of the card (I had intended to leave the messaging for the interior - an almost nearly slightly conservative move which is a bit of a shock). I played around with some designs and thought the final product had the right feel and flow. And you know I couldn't stop there. I prettied it all up with some clear gems.
My in-laws are incredibly amazing loving people. mr. everythingshetouches and I are very fortunate to have them in our lives to send us good marriage vibes, give us advice and to love and adore Alex with grandparent abandon (and cookies and milk before bed).
