Paper Roses

  I have in hand the new TJ newsletter, and had a bit of fun trying the technique Embossed Crayon resist for the second time.  I really love floral stamps so much, so I chose to use these pretty Roses with the leaf background.
  The Roses are by Firecracker Designs by Pamela, and the set is called Paper Roses which is a set with a large rose, 3 smaller roses, leaves, baby's breath and a few sayings.  I think for $8.99 it is a real steal!  There are so many possibilities.......
  I stamped the roses in Versamark, and embossed them with Gold EP.  I colored them in with Copic markers R81, R83 and R85- very beautiful colors IRL!  I put them on dimensionals.
  I spritzed the BG with the CB embossing with Blue Slies Glimmer Mist.
   What could be better than Pink, Blue and Glimmer?  I just love the combination.  I did not feel I could add ribbon without distracting from the Roses, so I added a one more element to finish off the card- piercing in the upper Lt and Lower Rt corners.
Card Stock is Old Olive and Temp Turquoise from SU.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my card!

I think this is really clever, using the leaves from the embossing folder to be the leaves of the roses - there is so much dimension in this card, I can't believe you thought you needed piercing, too (but it does look cool).

So beautiful. I love the gold embossed roses, I would never have thought to do that, then color them, so lovely. I just looked at that set, and now I think I "need" it (along with some of the other Firecracker floral sets). Thanks for great inspiration!
