Russian Inspired Wedding Card

Hello everyone, I have another Russian inspired project to share with you today. I have created a card for today's post using the Russian Spires stencil, and have chosen a wedding theme for my project. I have used bold colours, but you could easily opt for pastel colours and create something to match the colours of a specific wedding, by changing the colours of the rooftops, for example..

I cut a piece of watercolour card, and drew through the stencil with a pencil to start with, to get the shape of the buildings. I removed the stencil, and using a fine tipped permanent pen, I drew the outline again, joining up all of the broken lines. I added in a few extra details, like the edges of the rooftops, and the landscape.

I coloured the image and landscape with Zig Clean Colour markers. I masked the building, and also added a mask for a sun.  I used some Salty Ocean Distress Ink on a craft mat, and spritzed it with water, then picked it up with a waste piece of bubble wrap to create the sky. I just dabbed the scrunched up bubble wrap randomly over the background. I removed the masks, and added some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink for the sun.

I added a sentijment from the Words to Dazzle and Sparkle stamp set, and a small image of two silhouette birds from the Landscape Edges stamp set.

I hope that my card has given you a bit of inspiration, thanks for stopping by, xx

The bubble wrap sky is a beauty & so effective & I particularly like the way you created the landscape around the church. The details (the flying birds & the positioning of your sentiment across the sun with the way the "O" letters echo the shapes of the bulbous domes as well as the sun itself) really make this a stunner.
