French Rose

Hi there &  Happy Wednesday!!! I have another pretty rose card to share. The inspiration for this card comes from the latest Stamp It! magazine, page 16.  I thought it was really neat how the designer used Crumb Cake matted on Crumb Cake.  For my card, I stamped the very old background stamp French Script (still one of my favs!!) with white craft ink,  then embossed with white embossing powder, and finishing by sponged around the edges with white craft.  The just for you stamp is from the gorgeous stamp set Just Believe and the rose is from Fifth Avenue Floral.

For the flower, I stamped with white craft onto watercolour paper, embossed with white embossing powder and then applied the reinker technique to colour it in. I can't rememember the colours I used on this one, I think Melon Mambo and Regal Rose? I sure enjoy doing these roses, each one turns out differently.

The Eyelet border punch was used with Whisper White cardstock, the ribbon is Crumb Cake taffeta, the pearls from my (endless) stash!. The designer paper is something small found in my stash of papers, you know that pile that keeps growing and being added to,  because you just don't want to "waste" anything!! :) I seem to have several stashes of those....

Have a great day and thanks for stopping in!

Now see, this is one technique that I just CAN NOT get right. So, I've decided to leave it to the talented stampers, like yourself, who can create a gorgeous flower. Stunning card.
