As promised, I'm going to share the other card project that I took to my friend Linda, from Ohio.
This is just one of the many, many ways to use the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden framelits from the Occasions Catalog. This has got to be one of my top 5 sets ever. Not only is it a beautiful set, but its so versitile! I love a set that can be used in a variety of ways and look completely different each time.
For this card I used the stained glass technique. I used vellum cardstock and stampin' write markers. This is an easy but very cool technique with a "wow" factor.
Here's how to acheive the stained glass look. After die cutting the rose/leaves in basic black cardstock, attach it to the vellum with the fine tip glue pen. Then turn over the vellum and color from behind with stampin' write markers. I used real red, melon mambo, and calypso coral. This gives it a softer muted look. For the leaves, I used mossy meadow and old olive.
Do you see the differnce when coloring from the back of the vellum? It really tones down the color.
I used the Expressions Natural Elements for the "thank you" on this card. Notice the gold shimmer?
That's the wink of stella brush in gold. I just colored right over top the wooden greeting. I love the result!
Here's another card with a different greeting and more candy dot brads.
So, what do you think? Are you going to give the stained glass technique a try?
I guarantee you will be impressed with yourself!
Until the next time...
Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
