One has got to love the layers of a rose as the bud opens and the lovely scent that wafts at you as you admire them.
So I made a floral card today - my rose was stamped in Versamark and embossed with white pearl EP and then I used Brushos to watercolour the image. To frame my image I die cut a scalloped circle and then used a larger circle die to cut a round frame. I was initially going to use a double stitched circle to frame this but was happy so then I added my framed flower to it and that left a single stitched line around the frame... I mounted this with foam sheet to a square white card and to finish added a stamped sentiment, die cut with a stitched rectangle die.
Here is a close up...
To begin with I was ummming and arhhing over the watercolouring of the first card, and so had another go with a gold embossed rose - watercoloured with the same Brusho colours. I die cut a double stitched circle frame in a white card panel, trimmed to fit a blue card....stamped the sentiment in black and assembled the card. To finish I added a few clear crystal drops.
Here's a close up of the second card
