Morning, I am so pleased to be sharing another project as a guest designer for Lynnda at Oak House Studios. I adore Roses, so I just had to use the Dog Rose for me Project today, these were seen on Hochanda during Lynnda's last visit. For this 'Rainbow' project I have used the single rose bloom, a beautiful sentiment along with the 'English Garden' background stamp.
I started by stamping a few of the blooms onto copier paper with black Archival. These were then cut out to use as masks.
Having stamped the sentiment onto a 2 3/4'' die cut, I surrounded it with clusters of dog roses, which I built up using my masks.
I cut my main card to 7 3/4'' square and stamped the rose again, firstly randomly across my card and then in clusters around the edge, again using the masks I made earlier.
I masked off all of the roses both on the card and sentiment using Pebeo Drawing Gum. On the background I stamped the 'English Garden diagonally across my card using black Archival.
I took my Tornado stencil from Decoart and secured it in place with temporary adhesive. Then taking a blending sponge I swirled the Pure Colour Chemistry inks through it. I used Bottle Sunshine, Pumpkin and Totally Turquoise.
Using the centre of the same stencil I did the same, this time using only the Bottled Sunshine and Pumpkin.
I cut a mat for both my sentiment and card in 300gsm white card and edged it with Black Nuvo Gilding Mousse, although it's black it does give a much softer look while still accentuating the design. Finally I mounted my design and added the sentiment using 2 layers of foam tape to raise it from the card.
And here is the finished card.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my post, I really hope you have enjoyed the step by step and the card I am sharing with you today. Take care and see you soon. xx
