Wedding Congrats

A friend asked me to reproduce a card I had made before, with these two lovebirds.

I didn't want to make a complete copy, but needed it to be close enough for them to be happy with the final result. I've used all the same techniques: brushed inks on the base card for the background, painted the birds with distress inks, black 'highlighting'.

I changed the colours slightly:
  • Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick Distress, Cranberry Adi
  • Aqua and Denim Adi, Evergreen Bough Distress
This is a wedding congratulations card, but we wanted it to be subtle. Feels nice and CAS for this week's challenge at Less is More.
