Purple Roses

I couldn’t pass up on Windy Robinson‘s beautiful card at CASE study. Here is her card for inspiration:

Oh I am just in love with the grey and the purple! they look so good together!! I decided to take out my rolled rose dies and give it another go. This time, they came out much better than last time. I suppose with practice it gets better. Here is the card:

Rolled Roses

I started out with a grey card stock for the card base. I masked off 1/2″ all around using eclipse masking tape, then stamped the plaid pattern with a Wplus9 stamp set and white pigment ink. Next I stamped the flourish in grey. I also added silver liquid pearls in place of the dots from the stamp.

As for the roses, I used white card stock for the dies. Then I sponged distress inks on them. I used three color; light, medium, dark, applying light all over, then medium half way, then dark at the bases. After all the inking I curled the outer edges backwards and then rolled them up. Sorry if all this sounds confusing, I think I will do a video soon on how I made these.

The sentiment was a mishap…first I stamped in grey, and got so upset because it wasn’t where I wanted! Then I stamped in black slightly off, and where I originally wanted it to be. Although not perfect, I think it gives a kind of a shadow look. What do you think? Did it ruin the card?

Thanks for visiting! always appreciate your feedback!
