When the Altenew Inspiration Challenge for this month came out, I sat down and colored this flower. I loved the effect I was able to get with it but, I was really stumped on how to take this card even further. That was until I got the Bed of Roses Stamp Set in the mail recently from a recent clearance sale! I thought of the My Favorite Things current sketch challenge and got to work!
I took light pink and lime green cardstock and clear embossed the garden roses with an ultra fine embossing powder. I then took Altenew Rouge Crisp Ink Dye to the pink paper and ink blended it on. Then, I repeated the process on the lime green cardstock with Frayed Leaf. I then used a die cut to cut strips out. I alternated them and glued them onto the card. I stamped take care on white, added a flair to the end, and added a layer behind it. To make the flower really stand out, I glued 4 layers to the back of it.
