I have long admired these rose stamps from Starving Artistamps so when it was my Guest Design turn, I knew I wanted to use these stamps! The colors I chose are not my usual colors although, I am really happy how it turned out! Here it is ~
The base of my card is Old Olive with a mat of Basic Black and then Whisper White. On the Whisper White piece I stamped the open roses from the set (which can be found HERE) using So Saffron ink. These are 2-step stamps and actually are much prettier in real life. I used the same Saffron ink and I also used Old Olive on the single rose and leaves in the focal image which is also stamped on Whisper White. On the leaves I also added some brown from my Prismacolor pencils to make them look more realistic. The sentiment and butterfly are from the SU! Sale-a-bration rubon set (sorry, can't remember the name). I added yellow Swarvoski crystals to the centers of the flowers, ends of the swirls and on each corner of the large piece where I used the ticket corner punch. I used my Quickie glue pen to adhere these. The butterfly was rubbed on Saffron cardstock and then I cut it out and mounted it using a dimensional. The polka dot paper on the decorative corner is from KI Memories and was made using the technique I showed you HERE. I used my Crop-a-dile to add 2 black eyelets and then tied my olive ribbon which is from the Theatre ribbon originals set. I also used my paper piercer and mat pack to pierce the larger floral mat. I adhered the single rose using dimensionals. You can click on the picture to see the details closer....
