Good morning Ladies,
Today's card was inspired by a card we saw on the Honey Doo crafts stand at Ally Pally last weekend. Brenda and I both fell in love with it straight away and bought everything we needed to recreate it, the vellum adds a real soft, feminine feel to the card, the second image shows the stamped and coloured Rose and it's quite bold, the vellum overlay really softens the colour.
The stamp is called 'Roses are Red' by honey Doo Crafts, I coloured it with Honey Doo mica powders too, Raspberry Ripple and Lime Zest, they are amazing to colour with, I wish now that I had bought the whole set! I was trying to decide between Mica powders and the Brusho's, any tips?
I used my 'faux misti' to make sure that I had the stamped image on the base card and the vellum lined up perfectly. I used Versamark to stamp the rose on the vellum and Embossed it White Opal Glitter Embossing Powder (Honey Doo) , I added then Creative Expressions Sentiment.
I didn't have a matching pink ribbon so i went for green which I thinks works well, I added the pink flower to finish the bow.
I hope you like the card x
Sue and I went to see Pat yesterday, we did a lot of Chatting and crafting, Pat unboxed her new Gemini machine and worked through the different sandwiches with Sue, It worked like a dream, Pat was cutting dies in no time! Sue was making a little keepsake snuggle toy for her new Granddaughter (due any time), I was busy playing with Mica powders and stamps. It was lovely to see Pete looking so well, what a difference a week can make!
So many of you had/ have dentist appointments this week, what a coincidence, mind you Lynda has my sympathy your treatment sounds like hell on earth to me, injection, drilling, i was reading through my fingers, bless you sweetheart your mouth must be so sore, will be worth when you have your smile back xxx
Brenda glad you got the accounts sorted, I was going to say you can have some time to play, clearly not, please slow down! Please ask Ciara to share her cards that she makes with her new goodies xxx
