ISC August Release Day 1

Sketch of Roses III

Julie Warner - justwritedesigns

Aren’t Roses utterly breathtaking? This stamp line has a lovely background image approx. size 4 ½ x 5 which lends itself to some many different tech’s, you’ll find this line quite versatile! The delicate Roses are so easy to color in with your fave medium of choice!

For my card, I stamped the large background onto white card stock. Just the section with the Rose wording was stamped again on a smaller piece.  I added just a hint of color to the leaves on the large one and used a circle die for the small one. I used a narrow red ribbon to add the loops around the edge and I attached a cardboard circle to the back to keep it all in place. There is a black labels 3 die cut under the circle, but it’s a little hard to see.

I stamped the big rose twice and the small rose once, colored them with a water brush and some dye reinkers then cut them out. A little shading was added with some markers. I used a stylus on the top two to add a little dimension then layered them on top of each other.  The sentiment was stamped with red and layered on a red scrap.  I made a little vellum envelope to tuck it into. The finished card measures 4.25 x 5.50 (A2).

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to stop by all of the architect’s blogs. I know they’ll have some fabulous art to show you!
