Today the Creative Architects are showcasing the set called.....
Sketch of Roses III
Aren’t roses utterly breathtaking? This stamp line by Innovative Stamp Creations has a lovely background image approx. size 4 ½ x 5 which lends itself to some many different techniques. You’ll find this line quite versatile! The delicate Roses are so easy to color-in with your fave medium of choice! And...the design makes it easy for layering a 3-D Effect.
On this card I used the large rose image in the set. (There is a smaller one as well.) I actually stamped the rose image on a large piece of white cardstock. I wanted my rose to be 'out of the box' so when using my Nestie to die cut the main panel, I first trimmed the leaves and part of the rose so I could leave it out of the die cutting process. I then embossed the mail panel and added one of the sentiments from the set. I then stamped the rose image two more times on cardstock. I colored all three rose images. Then I cut out two of the roses to create layering/3-D evvect on the rose. I embossed the mid-green panel with a Sizzix embossing folder. I used a Marvy corner punch for the upper corner punchouts and a Martha Stewart punch for the lower border effect. I did a bit of piercing on the upper panel, added some ribbon, and used a black marker to outline the die cut main panel and make it pop out from the back panel. I added some rhinestone glitz to the lower border and just a touch to the upper corners.
