Finetec flowers

Hello there my crafty friends!  During the last 30 day coloring challenge I had a little time to play along with the coloring.  I pulled out my stash of Finetec watercolors.  I love these little gems!  The metallic finish and sparkle is just amazing.  I just couldn't decide on which colors to use so I did several different colors.

To start, I cut several pieces of black cardstock and treated it with anti-static powder.  I then took the main rose stamp from the Just A Rose set and stamped it with Versamark ink.  Just like picking the paint colors, I couldn't decide on a single embossing powder!  I did one in black, one white, one white pearl, one silver, one rose gold and one gold.  Now to paint them all!  I must admit I had lots of fun playing with the Finetec paints. :-)

I'll tease you with one of the finished cards!

I fussy cut all of the flowers out and thought about what to do with them all.  I wanted them to be the focal point of the cards.  I blew the dust off of my embossing folders and picked several different designs.  I also went through my paper stash and picked out papers that matched well with the flowers.

I used the same basic layout for all of the cards but changing up the sentiments and embossing powders.    I used several sentiments from Time to Blossom and Just a Rose.  I glued all of the pieces onto black card bases and used foam tape on the flowers.  And since you have all been so patient, here are the rest of the cards!

As a final note, I took all of the cards out onto my three season porch so I could get a picture of all that gorgeous sparkle in the sunshine!

I hope you find time to color today.

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 stamped and embossed the same flower with Wow! White pearl on black cardstock of size 4" x 5.5".

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…
