Saturday Stamping more Pink...

Happy Saturday,

I thought I should show another version of the rose stamp I showed last week.  This time I have stamped the image In cosmic Shimmer detail black embossing powder and then I coloured in the image. I coloured the rose bud using Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet distress markers this time making sure I colour inside the lines this time!

I coloured the leaves in a selection of green distress markers using a wet paintbrush I pulled the colours from the edges to shade the image.

Next I cut the image out using the Lotus Filet due form Couture Creations die and shaded the centre whilst in the die using Spoun Sugare distress ink.  I then gently coloured the edges of the die cut using cut n dry foam.

To make the card Background I embossed a piece of coconut white foundation card using a mask and the technique I detailed on Tuesday.  Whilst still in the mask I shaded the raised area using more of the distress ink pad and cut it into a large square.  Next I simply shaded around the card, the embossing of the mask leaves a frame around the embossed masks which looks like you have added and extra layer.

Finally I added the whole piece, with a strip of ribbon and a pink dazzler, to a hand cut 21cm x 21cm card blank onto which I stamped some creative expressions swirl stamps (I've had them for years so I don't know the name sorry!)  in the spun sugar.

Hopefully this comes across a little less pink than Thursdays offering!

  17. Good afternoon John,
    Oh John, you are spoiling us with TWO pink cards this week and both equally as stunning. This beautiful card could do for a lot of occasions as it is just this side of the plain and simple category. Thank you for all the stunning cards you have brought to us this week, yesterdays being one of my all time favourites and it is my favourite die of the Gemini collection as well.
    Thank you John for all your beautiful designs,

  24. Lovely card John, beautiful rose. Watched you today on C+C I had recorded, showing some lovely dies and stamps, just a shame that every time you were doing your tutorial the presenter was talking about other thing for sale and the camera was off you so I missed what you actually was showing, not happy ! Have a nice evening, Maria x
