Camellia or Rose

Hi there,

I finally used some of my Spectrum Noir markers, here is the finished card.  I can’t decide if the flower is a rose or a camellia.  Either way, I’m happy with how it turned out 🙂

Floral Vintage Labels Two 8Ink:  Memento London Fog
Cardstock:  White, Green
Stamps: JustRite Floral Vintage Labels Two and Always and Forever Labels Medallions
Dies: Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large, Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals , Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window
Embossing Folder: M-bossabilities Cabbage Rose (Side B)
Spectrum Noir: DR1, PP1, PP3, PP5, CG2, DG2, DG3, DG4, CT2, GB5, GB8, BGR1, Blender Pen
Other: Double sided tape, Foam tape

After stamping the image, I coloured with the pens listed above.  I had seen a tutorial here which gave details of the pens used, so decided to stick with these colours.  Once I had cut out the image, I used BGR1 and the Blender Pen to colour the background.

I didn’t have any pink cardstock that was “just right”, so after cutting with Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window using white cardstock, I coloured it with PP1, to match in with the flower.  Using green cardstock I cut out two Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Ovals.  I then layered the image on these cutouts with foam tape and double-sided tape.

I embossed the card base with Side B of the Cabbage Roses M-bossabilities embossing folder., and adhered the matted image with double-sided tape.

Using the oval shape from the Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals, I cut out an oval, coloured the centre with PP1, and stamped the sentiment from Always and Forever Labels Medallions.

I’m entering this card in Make It Monday #160.

Bye for now,

  4. Penny, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I was happy that you were inspired by my Spectrum Noir colouring of this stamp to try yours. It turned out beautifully. The backgorund is a beautiful touch to go with this stamp. 🙂
