Rose Bed

Here are two cards I made using the same swirly rose die. The orange one above uses only a portion of the die. After cutting it out in white, I simply placed an alternative colour card behind the cut-out. After pushing all the little segments of leaves and petals out, I glued the rose outlines back into place.

For the pink card below, I cut the whole die out twice, one in white and one in light brown card. I placed the pink scripted paper behind the brown card background, but glued the white rose outlines in instead. When my card was completely assembled, I highlighted the bottom right rose only with Glossy Accents and sprinkled crystal glitter over.



Flower Vase

May 7, 2016


My first card from the flower stamps I took on my recent travels (checkout my facebook post or see below). I stamped rose vase onto a piece of card that was coloured with Distress Stains: Mustard Seed & Aged Mahogany, then stamped border image down the side of the card also in Aged Mahogany Distress ink. I coloured in roses with pencils, then added Glossy Accents over the top to highlight. The vase I painted with Buttercup Liquid Pearls. The wording was stamped in black Archival ink onto ivory card cut from Sizzix Mini Labels set 657214, sponged with Scattered Straw & Aged Mahogany Distress ink. I added 3 dots of Garnet Liquid Pearls under wording and lightly spritzed label with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearl Mist.

Whenever I travel, I take with me my watercolour palette and some pencils, along with some stamped images to colour in. Everything folds flat so is quite easy to transport. There are always those moments on holiday when you have to entertain yourself (like sitting at the airport waiting for connecting flights). My version of the adult colouring-in books that are so trendy at the moment, but more practical, as my efforts are later turned into cards.
