Divine Light

This design can be used for a lot of occasions.  This card is for a wedding, and includes a stamp and a technique by Sheena Douglass.  The background is created using white card that has been embossed through a machine.  The raised pattern is then glittered with multi coloured glitter, three swirls are die cut in the same white card and glittered.  The main focal image is stamped onto white card with Black Soot distress ink, then using a paint brush and water the stamped image has some of the ink smudged to give a watercolour effect.  The rays of light coming through the widow on the left are created by using the brush and water again.  The rays are painted on with water, then blotted off with kitchen towel.  This takes the ink off the paper because distress inks react with water.  Then the rays are painted back in using a pearl white paint to emphasize them.  Both panels are matted and layered onto mirror card and attached to the base card.  The swirl die cuts are added along with a bow and a greeting to complete the design.
