I cannot believe it is Friday already ! I had to double check the calendar this morning as this week seems to have flown by.
The good thing though is that I am having a total crafting day & weekend.
For the card I am sharing today I have used a love themed stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Roses for you.
It is a beautiful set, but since it popped through my door I have been looking at the heart cluster of roses thinking it could be used as background stamp with a little careful placement.
So this morning I cracked out my Mission Gold watercolours and decided to give it ago.
Now it did take some working out, and I was left with some small open areas but I used the individual roses & leaves to fill them in.
I was really happy with how it turned out, and it gives another way to use this lovely set.
I heat embossed the images onto some Strathmore Watercolour cardstock using Simons fine detail embossing powder.
I then did a very very light pink wash over the whole piece and allowed to dry, once it was dry I then did some loose watercolouring.
I was going to leave the leaves, but decided to water down one of the greens and use that and I am glad I did because it has broken up the pink.
For the sentiment I die cut Simon Says Stamp painted Friend die several times out of Neenah and then once out of the silver card I had in my stash.
The happy Birthday sentiment is from another Simon set and I heat embossed that and trimmed it to fit against the friend die.
To finish off I die cut the panel using Blueprints 29 and mat and layered onto the same pink card I used for the sentiment.
I then added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and Nuvo Crystal Drops…these are new to me and so far I am liking them !
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you all have an amazing day and a great weekend.
