Birthday Rose - December Mood Board

Hello, and Happy Sunday to you all!
It's Donna here, and I'm so happy to be sharing with you again.

Hasn’t this year flown by? I can't believe December is here already. Every year seems to bring so much that is unexpected, some bad but much of it good. Mostly, all this unexpected extra activity mainly just makes for a whole lot of busyness that I try to get rid of every January when I work out my new year’s resolutions. ( I've been unsuccessful so far, but next year's a new year, right?)

Isn’t this month’s Mood Board Gorgeous?  I love the cool colours and the silver sparkle. I’ve tried to capture some of this loveliness in my card this month.


I used the Just a Rose stamp set for my main image and stamped it in Memento ink, so that I could colour the image with my Copics. I grabbed out  and sampled all my light blue Copics and used different combinations for each petal, moving from blues to blue greens to blue violets. Once I had coloured the rose, I cut it out, leaving a small white border all the way around.


I stamped the sentiment on a piece of soft navy card stock, and heat embossed it in silver. I also added some silver spatters to the background piece. The final touch? Some Kennedy Grace sequins! The sequins matched perfectly with the colours of the rose. These are from the Kennedy Grace Beachside Bliss selection. I used the blue and clear sequins, and left the green ones for a later card.

 I cut the background panel with a stitched die, and layered it onto a card base. The flower has been popped up with some foam tape to give the card a bit more dimension.

Have you thought about joining in with the mood board. We'd love to see what you make!
Here's the board for inspiration.



It's been lovely to share with you. Until next time, may your days be full of joy.
Blessings,

Donna

Hello everyone! It's Berina here and welcome to my first post on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog. I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for October. In case you haven't seen it yet, here it is:


Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:


 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green.

I inked the left edge of the top folding A2 card base with the DI Spiced Marmalade and adhered the black panel on it. I mounted the rose with foam tape and adhered the sentiment with Sc…
