Golden Rose

Hi there!  I’m on vacation, so am using my time to play 🙂  This card features a gorgeous image from Power Poppy, it’s the Rose and Chamomile Digital stamp.  I love this image, it reminds me of a corsage for a special occasion 🙂  I printed it on kraft paper, and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I did a bit of inking with distress inks around the edges as well.  For the background, I tried inked up an embossing folder with embossing ink, so the de-bossed side would be heat embossed after I added some sparkly green embossing powder to it.  Even though there’s some parts that got embossed outside the pattern, I really like it, as it gives it a bit of a rustic effect.  I matted both pieces with red CS and added some pretty off white sparkly ribbon and a bow.  To finish it off, I found a little gold dragonfly in my stash 🙂

  1. This card looks like a glittery gift package all wrapped up in a package. I think I love the look of pencil coloring on Kraft paper. Thanks for sharing with us at the Mod Squad Challenge this week. Good luck!
