Birthday Roses

Hello and Welcome to my blog today! My project today features older Whimsy products. I used the beautiful Winter Roses BG stamp as well as the Brick stencil. The sentiment is created using the You're Birthday sentiment clear set and the the Birthday Word and Shadow die.

I stamped the image onto Strathmore Mixed Media Paper 400 Series with Distress Ink Antique Linen. I wanted to achieve a no-lines look and the antique linen ink blends in with the colors while coloring the image. I used the following colors to color the roses: squeezed lemonade, picked raspberry, aged mahagony, peeled paint, shabby shutters, forest moss. Weathered wood and tumbled glass were used for the background.

To create the brick wall I used the Brick stencil and modelling paste. With Gelatos caramel and iced rose I gave the bricks a slightly weathered look and my card a touch of shabby chic. I simply used my fingers to rub it over the dried modelling paste.
The word birthday was stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturn ink on Hammermill 100lb cardstock and cut out with the Birthday Word and Shadow die. I stamped the word happy the same way and hand cut it before I attached it with foam tape.

Adhering the image lpanel to a black card base and adding a few crystal jewels finish off my card.
