ROSE FOR SPRING CARD
Hi friends, Martha Lucia here with you to share a sweet card with a Rose Cut Out in chipboard, one of the great products from Unique Laser Designs that I used to create my card.
This is the original Rose without any alterations. This flower called Rose is available in MDF, Chipboard and cork. Also in two different sizes, 4-1/2"x3-1/4" the size that I used and 2"x1-1/2". In any form that you decide to use it´s beautiful, because you can decorate it with a lot of techniques to get different looks and textures like I made with mine.
This time I decided to work with PowderPuff Chalk Inks from Quick Quotes Scrapbook Company. Their colors are vibrant and the texture is very soft at the same time.
I applied the color directly from the ink pad over the flower. I started with the leaves using the colors Soft Sage and Kakhi. Then I continued with the body of the flower, using the colors Coral and Orange Slice. The PowderPuff Chalk Ink dried very quick and when I was satisfied with the color, I covered the entire flower with Wink of Stella Brush to give it a bling.
To finish my card I created a base with Pistachio Pudding Card Stock with a second layer in the same color. I made a dry embossing to the second layer using a Plaid Background Embossing Folder and inked it with the same color of Classic Ink to create a tone by tone background.
To give m card a more delicate look, to go with my Rose, I cut a piece of Vellum Card Stock, I pierced the vertical borders and stamped my sentiment on top with Versamark and Embossing Powder Wild Wasabi.
Remember to heat the vellum when your heat tool reaches a stable temperature and to always heat from behind to avoid the paper bursting into flames.
After this, I pasted the vellum centered behind the Rose with glue dots and covered the glue dots with little pearls.
