I made this card last week for the card sketch challenge (#312) at Splitcoaststampers. I've been really challenged to hop from Christmas trees and snowmen over to hearts so I decided to do a floral theme. Seemed an easier transition.
- The main rose is colored with a combo of SU! markers and watercolor crayons. Watercolor crayons always come out lighter so there is even some Ruby Red mixed in with these corals and light pinks.
- I used my new EK Success edge punch on this one. It just jumped into my hands one day when I was walking through Hobby Lobby and not wanting to be a shoplifter I had to buy it. :-) In addition to the bracket shaped edge it embosses. Works great with these heavy Papertrey Ink cardstock.
- The background roses are embossed after stamping them on some SU! Sweet Pea paper.
Thanks for visiting today!
