I started by making an A2 sized card base out of Melon Mambo card stock and set that aside. I then cut a piece of HOTP (4217) Silky Papers to 4" x 5 1/4" and rubbed the whole panel with an embossing bag. I stamped the rose image in Versamark ink, sprinkled the image with SU Gold embossing powder and heat set it. Stamp the sentiment the same way and heat set.
Using the Spectrum Noir markers, color the image. For the rose i used BP2 and BP6 and for the leaves I used DG2 and DG4. I'm still practicing with these markers but for simple shading I think it turned out quite nice.
Spinge the edges of the focal panel with Ranger Walnut stain Distress ink.
I left the inside of the card blank for a personal message.
Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.
And look at the gold embossing and sponged edges. I just love it.
Additional supplies used: Hot Off The Press (HOTP 4217) Silky Papers, Spectrum Noir markers (BP2, BP6, DG2, and DG4) Ranger Walnut Stain Distress ink, Blender tool, embossing bag, and a heat tool.
