Christenberry Collection for a Wonderful Wedding
Instagram is my favorite social media. This may be because I have used it as a place to fallow all my favorite paper artist. This leads to a very pretty and interesting Instagram feed. I just enjoy seeing all the wonderful cards, paintings, new products, and experimenting that goes on in the Instagram world! One day I was perusing through my Instagram feed and our local paper goods store (The Paper Chase) had a little giveaway going on. Now ya’ll know I love me some paper products. So of course I was going to inter into the giveaway. The Paper Chase was doing this giveaway in conjunction with three other small businesses. So off I went to check out the other three businesses. What I found was my new favorite place to buy surprises (gifts) from….Christenberry Collection is Amazing! Meredith the owner of Christenberry Collection has put together a great collection of art! Her Instagram feed makes me want to buy pretty paintings everyday! Meredith started Christenberry Collection in January of 2015 to help artist sale their art online according to Claire Brody Design. (Check out this interview at Claire Brody Design) I would like to add that Meredith is also helping people who love art find a way to buy art that is amazing! Here are a few of my favorites from her Instagram feed!
So, as soon as I had the chance I bought a amazing peace of art from Meredith’s collection. She had these amazing pin and ink drawings by artist Amanda Petro.
These were perfect for a friend who was getting married! I love the simplicity of the pin and ink work. They are so very clean and simply beautiful! Meredith made the process so very easy….I made a card sent it to here and she did the rest!
Now, I worked a while to make this card just right. It was for a friend who means so very much to me. But, it’s hard to make a wedding card that is masculine approved. So, this is what I came up with.
The card base is Tip Top Taupe layer with a embossed Tip top Taupe layer on top. Then I used watercolor paper to make the sentiment panel. First I taped off a rectangle area and used Pool Party reinker to create the background. I added layers of the color till it was at the desired darkness. Allowing this to dry. Then I tore the paper to make the rough edges!!!! Finally I stamped the Sentiment using Staze On Tuxedo Black.
Seems simple enough! But, I think that the result was a clean and simple card that almost was masculine!
I am going to leave you with a few more pictures of Amanda Petro’s art work….
She is truly Amazing!!!!
