Rose and Fern

Morning Friends and Crafters. For today's card, I have mixed 2 stencils from Be Creative along with one of the stamps to add some interest and texture to the piece. Here is have used the Distress Crackle stamp.

You will Need 
Nouveau Fern Stencil
Rose Bloom Stencil
Distress Crackle Stamp
Versafine Black Ink Pad
Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot
Alcohol Markers
Black Fine Liner, Alcohol and Waterproof
Pebeo Drawing Gum
White Stamping Card 6 x 6''
Red Card 6 1/2 x 6 1/2''
Black Card Base 7 x 7 ''

Step 1:Take your white stamping card and position your rose, draw through with your fine liner. Next overlay your fern stencil and repeat but dont go over any of your previous lines. Mask of your design with Pebeo Drawing Gum. Starting with Blueprint Sketch, blend in from the edge of your card.

Step 2: Continue blending with Chipped Sapphire

Step 3: Around the very edges, blend a little with Black Soot 'less is more'. Finally use the distress Crackle stamp all over the design with Versafine black ink.

Step 4: Remove the drawing gum

Step 5: Using a selection of alcohol markers colour your design, adding depth and shade.

Step 6: To finish your card, Layer it onto a red mat to bring out the rose, then mount onto your black card base.
