This is another card that I made when I got my new rose stamps from Chocolate Baroque a few weeks ago. The first ones I made were pink and red, my first thought when it comes to colouring roses, but I decided to try a yellow one this time, especially as it was for a friend who prefers the yellowy colours. I stamped the rose with the script background onto a snippet of white card with Memento black ink, and coloured it with Promarkers. I then cut it out with a Spellbinders Label 8 ( I think ) die, and inked the edges with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I cut a mat using the next size die from a snippet of black gold pearlised card and stuck them together. The base card is a white 15 cm square, and the patterned paper is from a 6" x 6" pad. I don't the name of it as it was one of some loose sheets that were given to me. I trimmed it to fit the card using a deckle edge cutter and as there was some green streaks in the pale blue pattern I also inked the edges of this piece with the green ink. I wrapped some pale yellow ribbon across this paper before sticking it to the card. The rose panel was then mounted over the ribbon with some thin foam tape. The greeting was cut with a Britania die from some toning pale blue paper and also from some little snippets of white card, three layers altogether each backed with Stick-It double sided adhesive. after layering them up I gave it a coat of Glossy Accents and let it dry before adding it to the card.
As I used some snippets I will be taking it over to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Use Snippets.
I am also entering it at Natalie and Amy - Flowers
and Country View Challenges - Anything Goes.
