Rosey Posey Card

Hi, Josette here with my Tuesday installment.  I am on a flower kick, I so want it to be spring.  Which it might be soon.  The weather in Texas is warm and sunny and the animals are shedding like crazy.  So even though I don't have flowers blooming in my yard, they are blooming in abundance in my craft room!!
This was a very fun card to make.  Using Cabbage Rose stamp, I stamped it randomly onto white card stock and then inked with Spun Sugar distress ink.
Pre-Inking.  Note I turned the card around in the final version.

Next, I used watercolor pain in a red and green and laid down an irregular patch of red and green.
Stamped the image onto each of the two sections and cut them out.  By doing this I get the look of shading and variation of color without actually coloring.  By stamping last, the ink stays bright and crisp.

After cutting out, I layered them and added highlights (lowlights) with a black glaze pen, a placed a few rhinestones in the center.

A black ribbon finishes the look.  Rhinestones were added to the ribbon and on the center of one of the background roses for added bling.  This was mounted on a pink matt and then finally onto a White A2 Card base.

Until next week,
Happy Crafting
