I did this for the Wednesday Stamper challenge, to construct a triptych. The centre photo is a stained glass window in one of many churches I visited in England. (I think this one was St James Church). I altered it in Photoshop and added a couple (lower left corner of the centre panel) from one of Melanie Sage's vintage image CD's. Then I painted Gesso behind the couple in an effort to have them show up a little clearer against the dark background. I used silver embossed white mulberry paper from the Paper Company to cover the side panels. I stamped (Encore Ink) and embossed (Top Boss Gold EP) on acetate with a new Inkadinkado corner flourish stamp. Then I stamped an Inkadinkado flower on iridiscent vellum, embossed with gold ep, and pop-dotted onto each side panel. The congratulations stamp is Stampabilities. I added Swarovski crystals to the centres of the flowers, and Tulip Fashion Bead Paint to some areas on the flourishes. Even though they don't look like it, the two side panels really ARE the same size, honest. Thanks for stopping by!
