Good Monday Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did. Yesterday we had a really fun afternoon at my friend Lois' place. We stamped, we watercolored we had some awesome taco soup. We didn't make any cards or projects, we all just watercolored. I want to thank the girls who where there for their friendship and support. They are so much fun and even tho I was nervous, trying to help them watercolor, I think it went OK and they all had fun! Thanks so much to Lois for always opening her home up to us crazed stampers!!!!
The rose I used on today's card is one I watercolored yesterday! I used tangerine tango ink, the stamp is from the 5th Avenue Floral Stamp set. I love to color that rose.
I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try for my layout!
I started with a base of tangerine tango followed by some whisper white and then chocolate chip. The tangerine DS paper is from the now retired Haiku pack and is matted with more whisper white. The next layer is chocolate chip followed my whisper white. I pierced all around the edge of this layer with my piercing tool and mat pack. The next layer is my "faux ribbon" treatment, made with chocolate and white card stock. I pierced this piece as well.
I cute the oval scallop with my nesties and cuttlebug and the white oval with my coluzzle. I pierced the scallops also. I stamped the sentiment, from the Great Friend set, with timber brown stazon and I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to line it up, and it is still slightly crooked.
I then cut out my already colored tangerine rose and mounted it to the card with dimensionals. The oval is also mounted with dimensionals.
I added tiny sticky pearls to the corner of the DS layer and it is done!
Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
