A Touch of Spring


The rose is from Flourishes I Love Roses.

Image:
1. It was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold, on Neenah Classic Crest Natural Super Smooth 80lb. Cover cardstock.
2. Painted with Twinkling H2O's Lemon Yellow, Garnet, and Olive Vine,
3. And then trimmed around and painted with the colors used closes to the edge.

Card:
1. A 12X5" piece of folded Neenah Classic Crest Natural Super Smooth 80lb. Cover was cut using the largest die from Spellbinders Curved Rectangle set. It actually left the shape and cut a little itty bitty piece of the center and ends at the top. Just enough to keep its shape. It was put though a second time to emboss the edges.
2. The edges were sponged as shown with Twinks Olive Green. The inside was painted about an inch in from the border using a Twink Buttercup thick wash.

Background:
1. Spellbinders Curved Rectangles (Next to Largest die) was used with Neenah Classic Crest Natural Super Smooth 80lb. Cover cardstock. It was put through a second time to emboss the edges.
2. The embossed edge was sponged with Twinks Olive Green.
3. Then it was scored using Score-It every 3/4" across the length and then across the width as shown.
4. A really old Rosebud stamp from a Hero Arts container of stamps was used to stamp diagonally across the squares as shown. The images were then painted with the same watercolors used on the Rose.
5. It was mounted on the card.
6. The main image was mounted as shown using large dimensional glue dots.

Tag:
1. The smallest die from Spellbinders Curved Rectangles was used and the edges were sponged with Twinks Olive Green.
2. It was mounted as shown in the lower left hand corner.

Embellishments:
1. May Arts Ribbon as taped across the top of the card. A bow was tied using Martha Stewart instructions.2
2. Mark Richards Crystal Stickers Elements Rubies were added to the center of the rose, tag at the top and bottom right side of the card.

Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share!
