I started with a smooshed Inka panel with two colors. I let it dry and added another layer, with thicker (less spritzing) paste to add deeper colors and let that dry again. I then used the cover plate and cut the floral layer out of vellum and used Multi Matte Medium to attach it to the panel around the outer border and a few random spots, trying to make them inconspicuous. I then embossed the sentiment on a thin strip of vellum and added a few sparkles. Inside, the sentiment says "two hearts become one". Here's a close-up of the shine...

The wedding was a beautiful nautical theme, with the colors actually navy and silver. Nautical decorations abound, some of them homemade, a sailboat topper on the cake, attendee signatures on a handmade wooden anchor by the Hubbs, "messages in a bottle" for the bride & groom, groomsmen wearing "hawaiian" sailboat shirts and bridesmaids wearing homemade dresses by the bride. It was quite awesome!
Well, enough of me, hope your weekend is amazing and that you all get to play a little in your craft rooms. Thanks for stopping by, and thank you ALL for the love you leave!
