I have been playing with the beautiful new Petal Palette set and really enjoying all the possibilities it offers. We will be using it at our stamping retreat this weekend and I'll be basing a class around it in February.
I am also combining this card with a new challenge - new to me - Inspire.Create Stampin Challenges #009
Love seems just perfect for this card.
I have stamped the roses with archival black ink and coloured the roses using an aqua painter and real red and coral inks. The leaves are painted in both old olive and garden green.
I don;t have any of the glimmer embossing paste but I am loving using the regular embossing paste and sprinkling it with dazzling diamonds while it is still damp and just waiting for it to dry. I have done that same technique on a number of cards. The little lace panel is cut using the thinlits that pair with the Petal Palette set, - the Petals and More thinlits. This textured piece is such a lovely addition to that set.
The roses were getting lost a little on all that silver bling so I popped them onto a circle of vellum to make them the focus.
I can't wait to do a class with this set, my ladies are going to love it.
I hope you have a creative week and remember,
"don't just post online,
post something pretty!"
