“A Bed of Roses”

Welcome to the next challenge at FSC… and this fortnight it is all about technique!

Dry/wet embossing.
 You can create anything you like, anything goes at FSC, as long as it has some form of embossing on it
and of course the main image is stamped
(And lots of ink is always fun).

My card this fortnight is a “pretty one”…and I only announce that because pretty is not something I usually do!  For some reason it just happened…lol
For my card I have used a dogwood rose stamp and stamped it a few times and layered and spread them out to add interest.
The rose stamp was masked, the En Francaise stamp was stamped over it and then it was die cut with a nestability shape…dry embossed and layered.
(unfortunately the embossing of this isn’t showing up in this photo)..and the edges are sponged in DI’s.
The 4 main roses have UTEE on them – but I only gave them one layer of UTEE because I wanted to create a mottled/watery effect.  The other UTEE embellies are the droplets on the flourishes ~ using Red Utee.

The background is sprayed, inked, wetted, and worked before being run through a Bigshot using a houndstooth embossing folder.  And then inked some more with DI’s.  I think it looks rich and like a big warm blanket!
(hence the name of this card! lol)
 Oh, and I added some butterflies…because everyone loves butterflies!
The black ones have copper EP around the edges.

Everything was then just assembled and…hey presto…

A big thankyou to the people you joined in my journey this fortnight.  You add sooo much excitement to what I do. Thankyou!

And remember to pop on over to FSC and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes…they never cease to amaze me with their creativity…and allow yourself to be inspired and join in the fun!
