DT Spotlight Tutorial - Christina

 Hi everyone, I'm Christina, here today in the Design Team Spotlight to share an elegant and unique wedding card that I created for a friend of mine. The colours of light blue and royal red, related to their heritages/ancestors, makes this card extra special.  

So let's get started...
Using Tim Holtz mixed media card stock as a base, I ran the TH Sizzix texture fades in sparkle on the top half of the card stock. Then applied distress oxide in Tumbled Glass over the top and lightly sanded it. 

To give it more definition, I randomly applied distress oxide in Broken China over the whole card (I didn't spritz the card with water because I wanted to achieve a chalk like finish)

Next, I created three backgrounds using distress inks in Broken China, Peacock feathers and distress oxide in Candied Apple.

I used Tim Holtz thinlits die in Funky Florals to 
create the flowers.

Now the fun part begins... WARNING.. be prepared to get inky!
I added Tim Holtz distress ink in Candied Apple and H20 spritzer to the TH crinkle ribbon, 'till the desired colour is reached. Then using my hand and a heat tool, I scrunched the ribbon 
until it was dry.

Next, I adhered the ribbon to the card and created a little 'bling'- by using pearls on the centres of some of the sparkles.

Last, but not least, I assembled the flowers then adhered them to the bottom half of the card..

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and it leaves you feeling inspired! Please visit my blog for more photos.

Hugs, Christina.
