One of the Sisters asked me to do a card for her mama's Birthday, and I decided to get a little bit out of my comfort zone, doing something without a cute image, but playing with a rose stamp instead.
I had these Papermania papers for quite some years, but I really love the soft tones they have, and I decided to play with some roses theme. This is the result of my mojo for today (sorry for the not-perfect photos, the weather did not want to cooperate at all!
I stamped part of the rose stamp directly on soft pink paper, and colored the rose with Copics. After that I used some light pink Stickles to enhance the colour and give it some special shine.
As you can see I added some pearl string around the image and then another larger circle with the same paper, finishing with a doily. Behind the doily I also added another layer of card, using a smaller circle, so that I could pop it up on some foam pads.
This is the final effect of the main image. Thank you to my friend Ally who sent me these beautiful edged dies together with other beautiful goodies and a very beautiful Gorjuss card ( I will add a photo). I am really happy with them :)
Other embellishments I used with this card is a bouquet of flowers, some of them Magnolia flowers, others coming from my stash, some pieces of gauze (substitute of cheesecloth, as it is non-traceable here!), self-adhesive pink rhinestones, a heart made of pearls, and a ticket used as a sentiment.
I finished also the inside with a greeting quote that mentions also the rose, I was happy that I came across it. I edited it on Word, and printed it. Voila'!!! This is the result, I hope you like how it turned out :)
I stamped the same rose on the plain circle, using Spun Sugar Distress ink, and I left it like that for the Sister to write her own personalised message.
Finally another angled shot. I leave you with this. Thanks a lot for the wonderful comments you leave here and on my Cards Facebook page, they brighten my day, and adds you to the list for who I pray everyday xxx
