A Purple Rose??


I am posting a day late for this fortnight's challenge at Word Art Wednesday, where our sponsor this time is Stamp Simply with a most generous prize of a $20 credit to their store.

The wonderful scripture used here is available free over at the Word Art Wednesday site


The rose is from the Thinking of You Rose Bundle, which includes the matching die.
I coloured it with Polychromo pencils, and then added clear Wink of Stella.  
A few minutes later I picked up the Wink of Stella pen to add another layer of sparkle, and layered it with silver WoS, not Clear.. and that's where the deeper purple tones came from, as originally it was nearer pink!

To finish the card I layered a strip of vellum to one side when assembling the card, and then found some beautiful matching mauve sequins to add over it

The background was a shaving creme and Brusho's panel that I made when having fun with my friend, and it actually has some wee spots of mauve.

I am linking this to:

I love those happy accidents Maxine and your pink to purple rose is perfect! Love the shaving cream background, I've never tried that technique, maybe I should give it a go! Thanks for playing along at The Paper Funday Challenge and we hope you'll stop in again soon.

Love this card and the message. It is a shame war has to be a part of any language.

Thjat is a lovely rose stamp. You get very good results with your Wink of Stella pen. I can hardly see where I have used mine. And you even catch the shine in your photos. I see you did use two layers so maybe that is what did it.
I still love the shaving foam background. I am going to try it but it has been too hot here to do much playing this week. Kate x

Thanks a lot for entering the EAC challenge.

I'm sure there are a gew purple roses and for sure they are a bit pale, just as your beautiful one! Hugs, Gerrina

You've given the Scripture verse a very pretty and feminine artsy background. Like pairing opposites together. Kudos.

I love what you've done with that image. It has so much character, and yet, it's still soft and elegant. Fabulous background panel too. Thanks for sharing this with us at The Paper Shelter!

This card is beautiful Maxine! I love your shaving cream/brusho's background, compliments your rose so nicely! The rose is just gorgeous, I love that the deeper purple tones comes from the silver WOS! That is so cool looking. Love the scripture too. Again, beautiful card Maxine! Hugs, Brenda

Brenda said...

What a beautiful card! I love your softly colorful panel and the subtle sparkle on the rose. Thanks so much for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week!

Your soft colors and that verse are such a great combination on this lovely card.

Lovely shaving foam panel, that is something I must do one day soon as I have not used it for simply ages.
I love how the wrong Wink of Stella pen darkened areas of the rose and gave it a different colour. It still worked really well with that gorgeous background.
Blessings, neet xx
