Work actually went great yesterday! Guess I've done it so long that even a 4 month break didn't make me forget everything--haha! My dad & I shared a love of roses & I'm always drawn to cardmaking products with them. Recently I used a gift certificate to get Stamplorations Boxed Blooms and Bold Sentiments. As you can guess, my first card uses the rose.
My layout comes from the January Stamplorations sketch. The rose is silver embossed & colored with Zigs using a "messy" watercolor technique--hopefully giving an "artistic" look--haha! The sentiments in the set seemed a bit too large, so I used one from C&9th Flourish stamp set. The black ink is Brilliance Graphite Black which I also used for the splatters. I struggle getting small splatters--can never figure out the right brush to use--but this time it worked! I'm also entering Stamplorations January CAS challenge, Stamplorations Never- Ending Anything Goes challenge, Darnell's NBUS Challenge #9 & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
