Im also having a rustic wedding, since we are getting married on the family farm it kind of went without saying. I like the stir stick and the background paper but Im not sure about the front paper in the red.   I do like the hearts! But the finish you did on the red comes across as dirty in the photo. Im having the same problem, how to antique without it looking dirty. Best of luck!!

I can see the rustic idea coming through but I do agree they look dirty (at least in the pictures). I’m sure they are better looking in person. Good work though! =)

Depending on what kind of paper you’re using, you could use the crackle paint to give them that rustic/antiquish sort of look. I have used the crackle paint dozens of times (only on wood though), I wouldn’t imagine it would work much differently with a cardstock or any other textured paper. Just an idea! Good luck!

I am an avid scrapbooker and I don’t think they look dirty at all. Great job! I love how you used popscicle sticks. I couldn’t figure out what to use, but finally used some neon stir sticks for mine. Love it!

I love these! Love the different paper. I also use brown ink on tons of different things, edges of wooden hearts for example. I think I got the same thin sticks for mine. Gotta love Hobby Lobby sales, they were $1!
