French Rose

 This is a card I CASED last year. (I cannot remember who from)

I feel it has such a sophisticated look about it…maybe it is just because it has used French Script as the background?

I didn’t have the punch that was used for the “thank you” background, so I made my own using the Scallop circle and an oval punch. Then I sponged the edges to give a deeper feel.

The rose is coloured by the “Re-inker” technique or “Floating watercolour” technique. It certainly is one of my favourite techniques especially for adding a variety of colours to larger outlined images. The photo doesn’t do it justice for how it actually looks.

This is my creation for this weeks Clean and Simple ¬†Sketchtastically 83 challenge. It has given me an opportunity to ink up my new set “Vintage Vogue”. This is a new set, due to be released on April 1st with the introduction of the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

One of the other¬†inclusions in the Mini Catalogue will be 3 new “In-Colours”.

I have used one of them here, it is called Rich Razzleberry, teaming it up with Pale Plum and Whisper White. I have also used the background stamp “En Francais”. The vintage look really lends itself to the rock and roll technique used on the flowers.

I carried thru the idea with this card, by changing the Base card and adding extra bling. Rhinestone Brads given a great focal point on the flowers, as well as the dimensionals giving the flowers added depth.
