Just a ( Yellow) Rose Card

Jill here, back again to share a card I made using Kennedy Grace Creation's stamp, Just a Rose.
My idea was to create an elegant card with bold accenting. 

Jill  Designer

I chose to use Stampin' Up!'s black and white striped DS paper as my backdrop for the card's main design layer.  I first stamped the rose image on NSW 80# cardstock, then carefully masked over it so that I could white heat emboss the leaf  images from Altenew's Floral Shadow stamp.  I then blended some Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inks onto the cardstock to bring out those leafy images. I then unmasked my rose and proceeded to color it in Copic markers, light yellows and oranges (my favorite color rose). I used a slightly darker/browner orange for the stamens, then swiped some Wink of Stella across them for a little shimmer. I colored the leaves then decided I wanted to frame the flower panel, so I die cut a frame using 2 Stitched Rectangles from Simon Says Stamp from some NSW 110# cardstock.  I foam mounted the frame onto the flower panel for some dimension.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same KGC stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink (the best for really black, detailed images I think).  After adhering all the layers together onto #110 NSW card base, I gathered several sequins from KGC's Honey Bee mix and 1 silvery sequin from the Tropical Treasure Mix and randomly placed them into a visually appealing pattern (Hmm, a "random pattern" sounds a bit contradictory, but I think you know what I mean!).  **Of note, because I needed a certain amount of the black striping to show, my card dimension is not standard.  It ended up being 4.5" x 5.5".  Thank you for stopping by and seeing my creation.  I hope it gives you some interesting ideas to try out.

Happy crafting!!

Jill

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
