Shades of Pinks and Purples: Rose

6:21 PM Posted In Edit This 2 Comments »



This card features the ever popular floating re-inker technique which I LOVE!! I stamped the image onto SU's Shimmery White cardstock and painted away with some reinkers and an aqua pen. Sheer delight!!

The mirrored background behind the rose is one of those finds that I can't trace. When I subscribed to Vamp Stamp News, I received a sheet of it inside one of my magazines. I hoarded it (like I do with many things) and recently ran across it, so I decided to die cut it with my SU Top Note Die cut and place it behind my rose image.

The die cuts are miscellaneous cuts from my stash, the fern is a Martha Stewart punch. I stitched around the layer with my Janome Mini sewing machine.

This card is dear to me, as I made it for a very special friend of mine in the stamping world. I'm glad you love it Bonnie!!! Visit Bonnie's blog HERE for some incredible eye candy!!
