This week’s challenge was to use Designer Series Paper. I haven’t ordered any new DSP from Stampin’ Up! yet (yes…gasp!…), so chose to use some from Crafty Secrets.
Stamps: Paper Roses by Firecracker Designs by Pamela; Paper: Basic Black card stock (SU!), Radiant patterned paper (from the Heartwarming Vintage Collection from Crafty Secrets), Prism (red), watercolor paper (Canon); Ink: Black Noir (Palette), Brick Red and Old Paper (Tim Holtz Distress); Accessories: Prismacolor markers and blender pen, Copic Spica pen (clear), black metal clip (SU!), rectangle and scalloped rectangle Nestibilities dies, sponge for inking edges, key tag punch (SU!), Black Swiss Dot organdy ribbon (Pink Hedgehog)
I stamped the image using waterproof Black Noir Palette ink, and then colored the rose with Prismacolor markers. I used a blender pen to blend the colors, and then used a clear Spica glitter pen to add some sparkle.
I used a sponge to add Old Paper and Brick Red ink to the watercolor paper, gradually building up the color a little at a time.
I cut out the stamped image and the red scalloped layer behind it using Nestibilities dies…mounted the black and red rose printed paper over the black card stock, and then added the die cut layers. I added a black and white polka dot strip from the Radiant pad, stamped the sentiment on red Prism card stock, punched it out with the key tag punch, and attached the black clip (with the ribbon tied through the hole).
The sentiment reads, "If I had a rose for every time I thought of you, I’d walk through a garden forever." This stamp set is just gorgeous!
