Hello! Yes, it is Monday again… Some of you probably dragged yourself out of the bed today wishing you had one more day to sleep in.. How about I just cheer you up a bit with a beautiful card today? This rose card is for all of you, my fans and dedicated followers out there! I did a tutorial last week over at the Inspired By Stamping Blog and it was so fun to do this technique, so I had to share it here. This is one of my favorite stamp set that was released by IBS recently, I love how detailed and bold the images are in this set. This one is a regular A2 card, with a top fold. I love creating these types of cards because they are different and offer a better look when creating with portrait images.
If you are looking to create a card with a soft look, make sure to grab the Vintage Floral Paper Pad that was released along with the Vintage Roses Stamp Set. The paper pad offers lots of verity that are suitable for many occasions and you get 12 different designs with 2 sheets of each. For this card, I chose soft green background with white polka dots. Thought this would compliment the main image well.
You will also notice some pink spots on the main layer that surrounds the rose. I did a brush splatter technique so there are some supporting interests on the card. Make sure to watch the video below to see how I did this fun, easy technique!
For the main flower area, I tried a technique called Selective Copic Coloring. This name is just something I came up with, not sure if anyone out there have done this technique. (Shout out if you do know anything about it!) It was just a random thought that came to my mind while working on this card. So I just went with it and LOVE out it turned out! It looks very rich but soft at the same time and kind of gives a water color look as well (in my opinion). What do you think?
You can watch how I did this coloring technique in person. Check out the video below and let me know your thoughts! I would love to hear from you.
