Happy Birthday


Again I have resorted to making a card for Summer of Color 5 : SOC 5 - week 4  RED, RED, & METALLIC
I had some fun with  my Distress Inks to achieve the background, planned to concentrate the depth in the bottom corner as I had picked out this rose stamp (because roses are red!!) - I used Barn Door, Festive Berries and Aged Mahogany. Then I stamped the image in red and when everything was very dry I applied Versamark Ink to edges of the rose petals and then dusted it with Brilliant Gold Inference powder. Finally I stamped and embossed my sentiment in gold embossing powder and layered my top panel onto red metallic card.  I am also posting to Colour Me CMCC#78 - Monochromatic - Red.  Thanks for taking a peek
