Hand-painted Ruby Wedding

Ruby Wedding Card

This card was made for some friends of ours celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary this weekend.  I wanted to do something a little special, so I painted the roses using my acrylic paint fusion paints on some water colour paper, and mounted it on red silk mirri.   Computer generated sentiment also mounted on mirri.  I added two sorts of ribbon, some artificial roses, leaves and a little string of pearls in the arrangement.  I used pearlescent cream cardstock for the base.

I also took a photo of the painting and use it on the insert as well.

Thanks for dropping by.
