Vintage Blue Friday...
Back to Vintage Friday and a rhapsody in blue today lol. I thought I would like to make a card that allowed me to create a rose as I haven't really tried for a long time and I was hoping to get it right, you will have to let me know what you think?
I stared by cutting the Caribbean background into a piece of coconut white foundation card using just the outline and one level of detail form the die. I then added this to a piece of double sided adhesive and added diamond snow in the corners and Blue large mica flakes in the centre panel as shown.
Next I framed this using the noble double pierced background dies cut in coconut white and blue dusk. I foam mounted the frame over the piece and then added stick on crystals to all the points in the centre oval.
I then debated what to put in the centre as I wanted to feature the rose so I stamped the poem / sentiment from my Vintage Rose clear stamp set ( these will be on the One Day Special on Hochanda on April the 11th and 12th) onto a piece of coconut white and cut it out using the stitched banners die set backing this with a larger flag in the blue dusk.
I added this over the centre oval and added a messy bow of wrinkled edge ribbon in white and a hat pin form the Sue Wilson stick pin elements set.
I then added the rose on the centre over 2 of the rose leaves cut form the Christmas Rose set shaded with blue sky colour cloud blending ink. The rose was made form various layers of coconut white petals / flowers cut form the Camellia complete petals set. I shaded this with more of the sky blue colour cloud and added diamond snow to add some sparkle!
It would be great to hear what you think and whether I got the rose right?!?
