Black Lace and Roses........WSC#5








Today I want to share a card I made for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #5.

I love this open rose image and stamping it onto coloured card is my favourite way to use it, though today I've clear embossed it too.

Method:

1. Cut and fold Ivory Pure Luxury Card to give a 4.75 x 4.25 card base.
2. Mat some Christina Re lace dp to black American Craft card.
3. Layer some burgundy and cream satin ribbon then add the fine strand of black sequins across the middle. Wrap around the lace dp then attach this to the base card.
4. Using A Spellbinder die punch and emboss the Labels 9 shape from Ivory PL card. Whilst still in the die sponge  using Memento rhubarb stalk ink. 
5. Using a circle die as a guide and a Copic black multi liner ink the circle of dots.
6. Stamp the image from Roses in Bloom in rhubarb stalk ink onto burgundy American Craft card and emboss with clear embossing powder. Using a craft knife cut the image out and attach to the centre of the punched shape.
7. Attach the completed centre to the card base with foam dots and attach the Black gem to complete the card.


Thanks for taking the time to drop by today, I'll be back on Thursday with day one of Annabelle Stamps July Release previews.......Hope you can call back for that.
Till then............

Thank you for the kind words - I love the way you use that rose - I am a great fan of WMS and love Claire's work; I have that stamp of the rose but have not yet inked it up. Think I will now I have seen how you use it!
