Temptation was not Resisted....

Welcome

Firstly I would like to welcome my newest follower - 
I encourage you to visit her as she does wonderful work, and writes her blog with great humour!!


Way back in mid-December I saw a post by Yoonsun Hur using the Single Rose Die by Simon Says, and fell in love with it, and did a spur of the moment purchase.  i had to wait for it to arrive, but it was worth it.


I 'CASED' Yoonsun's card from memory - making the water coloured background using some Kohinoor water colours, sprayed it with silver shimmer mist and die cut the rose and leaves out of it.
(You can just see the shimmer in the photo below)


I then cut some scraps of the same weight water colour paper with the roses, and some green card with the leaves, and placed them back into the die cuts, with the red background cut outs too.


I embossed the sentiment with white ep at the base of the card, and added a wee silver bow and sequins to finish the card.

I am linking this to:

  9. Oh I know Judy, and she's always good to leave with a grin, as well as her adorable cards. So glad she found your blog. I LOVE what you've done with this die and the watercolors. As Judy would say "Really Artsy-F..." you know what comes next. The bold colors with the cutouts, so very striking and very pretty. Well done. TFS & hugs
