Well it was Melbourne Cup day here in Australia and it gave me an opportunity to take some time out and wallow in Girl World, which is always good for the soul.
Don’t you just love it when you have all the elements to make a card that you’ve seen somewhere, and even better – when you’ve seen it on the Case Study Challenge blog and are allowed to copy it! lol
This is my entry this week…
I embossed my Rose from Stampin Up’s Fifth Avenue Floral set and coloured it in with a single Copic pen – R20 – otherwise known as Blush for Cheeks! (lol) It was just the right colour to match up with the cardstock I had – which is from a DCWV stack.
The cream base card was stamped with Clings Leaves and one of the other flowers in the SU set. I also cut with my Big Shot a Nellies Frames die to layer the rose onto, as well as a new leaf die that I picked up recently. I’m sorry I don’t know what brand it is. The leaves were cut from cream cardstock and sponged with Kiwi Kiss and Always Artichoke SU inks.
This is Niki Estes card which is being “Cased”…
...and you can see more of her work at her blog HERE.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my Blushing Rose.
Have a great day
