Rose Wonder - Happy Birthday (or Wedding Wishes)


Sometimes, when I feel brave, I ask my regular class attendees to suggest a theme for class! This time it was a wedding theme! This is what I came up with for card number 1!

Hues of Blue to congratulate the Mr and Mrs!

Because I had no upcoming weddings, there was a birthday option!

I love adding Gold embossing powder to Vellum cardstock for a softer shine.

  • I used a Stampin'  Spritzer to add water to the centre of a Watercolour Paper layer (just enough to allow for the ink to move) and then applied three different Blues of ink with an Aqua painter. I waited for this to dry (wink, wink I used my Heat Tool) before adding a watery ink splatter to the top right hand quarter.
  • I definitely suggest die cutting the Rose Thinlit with a Precision Base Plate - it really makes cutting intricate pieces a breeze!
