Hello, everyone! Rachel here today with a beautiful birthday card featuring the gorgeous Splendid Roses stamp set.
I've colored these roses in all sorts of different colors, but I just love them in classic red. I stamped my image on a piece of white cardstock and colored it in with my Copics. My reds were R89, R39, R37, and R35. I used YG95, YG97, and YG99 for my greens. When it was completely colored, I used my Brother Scan N Cut 2 to cut it out because I'm too impatient for fussy cutting.
I set aside my image and prepared a card base from more white cardstock. I wanted a subtle background that would work well with my roses, so I used a layering stamp set to create a subtle marble look. I placed my roses approximately where I wanted to adhere them so I could figure out where to stamp my sentiment. I used my MISTI to stamp in Versamark ink and then heat embossed in silver embossing powder. I finished it off by adding my roses with some foam tape.
It's hard to see, but I wanted a little bit of shimmer, so I added a little to my marbling with a glitter pen. It adds some subtle shine and mimics the vein of shimmer you sometimes see in marble counters.
Thanks for joining me today!
