Friendship Rose

Hi and welcome to my blog  :)  Today I have another of my Chocolate Baroque samples to share with you.   I have used the same background stamp as in the 'Natural Beauty' and 'Rainbow Flowers' posts, but each card is totally different.  
I have used the Belle Flowers and Harlequin Rose stamp sets; Pastel Aquatints, Versafine ink, Distress ink, gold marker pen, white embossing powder.  

I stamped the large background onto white card then washed over it with Pastel Aquatints.  When dry I blended DI around the edges of the panel. For the main focal panel I stamped a rose script image onto acetate and embossed it in white.  I then did the caught in crystal technique on the back of the acetate and left to dry naturally.  I created a mat for the background panel by colouring the edges of a piece of card, cut slightly bigger than the panel, with a gold marker pen.  I matted the panel onto it and layered them onto a base card.  

I cut out the focal panel when dry and attached it to the card with dimensional glue.  I stamped a sentiment onto white card and washed over it with Aquatint.  I die cut the sentiment panel, edged it in gold pen then attached it to the card as before.  I added some die cuts and some Stickle dots to complete the card.   I love the way all these stamp sets work so well together, and that just by changing the colour scheme you can create very different cards.  This is another great worker card for all occasions, men and women.
Thank you for popping in today, I hope you have enjoyed this post - and come back soon  :)
