Some time ago, I saw THIS beautiful card on Pinterest and, ever since, I wanted to CASE it and our challenge this week gave me the perfect opportunity to do it.
This gorgeous Rose is a single, wood mounted stamp from Stampin Up! dating back to 1998, that was gifted to me, along with another stamp of a beautiful Morning Glory, by my dear friend and card swapping buddie Lisa Poe. She mentioned in her note that a friend of hers was at an auction and bought a box with miscellaneous goodies and, when unpacking this box, she found the two stamps at the bottom. I was more than thrilled when I saw them, this are the kinds of images I absolutely love. Just like the box of un mounted, beautiful Fairy stamps my aunt found at a second hand store, you never know what treasures you'll encounter in the most unexpected places.
I stamped this image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder then, I colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, I added a bit of shadows with my Prismacolor pencils. I added some confetti stars to finish it.
The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Perfectly Penned".
Here is a picture of the finished inside.
The images are from a retired Flourishes set called "Patriotism on Parade", I colored them with Prismacolor pencils.
This is the color challenge banner from Retro Rubber, I hope you join us and share your creations in our gallery. Please remember that the stamps you use must be at least one year old and, if at all possible, we would love to know their age. You can participate in up to 10 other challenges, including ours.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
