Echoes of Summer Rose in Pink

8:03 PM Posted In , Edit This 5 Comments »

This is a design I did for Clear Artistic Stamps. I am a "By Invitation Only" Guest Designer for the month of May, so please stop by and take a look at some of the wonderful stamps and a few of my designs while you're there.

This card features the rose image from the Echoes of Summer set. When I saw the image, I knew I had the perfect technique for it. I used the Marker Watercolor technique which I learned at Technique Junkies.

I stamped the image with VersaMark ink and embossed it with PSX gold embossing powder. Then, I used Tombow markers and an aqua pen from Stampin Up! to do the technique on 140# cold pressed watercolor paper. Easy peasy!

The base cardstock is Bazzill; the layer behind the main image is a Spellbinders Nestabilities die. LOVE IT!! The ribbon is from Michael's; the pin and jewels is something I made myself from a corsage pin I purchased at WalMart. The beads are from my stash. Corner piercing was done with a straight pin and an Ornare corner piercing template.

Thanks for looking. Stop by again soon!!
