Sketchy Rose

Hello again!  Tonight I'm sharing my second card that I will be adding to The Flower Challenge.  Since I love creating cards with flowers, I think this will be one of my new favorite challenges! 

Back in May I won an amazing amount of blog candy from Stamp Ink Paper (SIP blog) for their 100th blog post, and the beautiful Sketchy Rose stamp set from Altenew was amongst the prizes.  To start, the lovely rose image along with 3 leaves were heat embossed with white embossing powder on watercolor paper, water colored with Distress Inks, then fussy cut with paper snips.  I decided to mount it on a large white card stock die cut circle with foam tape, then set it aside as I worked on the rest of the card.

For the background, I used the Neat and Tangled Polygon Cover Plate and created a die cut from white card stock, then adhered on top of a panel that was previously blended with Distress Inks and misted with a mix of water and Ranger Perfect Pearls.  The entire things was wrapped with Linen Thread, then a cute corrugated tag with the sentiment was tied on with a bow.  After mounting the completed panel on a white card base, the circle with the rose and various sequins were adhered.  I also added a few drops of Nuvo Morning Dew drops to the flower.

Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated!  Please be sure to use the link above to the Flower Challenge and enjoy all the beautiful inspiration!
