Blue Rose

Playing along at Less is More Challenge #368 CASE Card by Aileen368 CASECardCapture d_écran 2018-04-09 à 17.50.27

I started with 300 lb watercolour paper by die cutting it with the Penny Black Rose Die, and adding Cobalt Blue on the edges (wet on wet) of the rose.  Once dry, I added some paint splatters and clear heat embossed twice, finishing with a coat of Sparkling EB.   I also die cut a piece of silver foil card stock and added the stem, leaves and a section of the rose.  “juste pour toi” (Just for you) was stamped and silver heat embossed twice using my Misti.


This card got ShowCASed for the month of April at the Less is More Challenge.  Thank you for the recognition! …and a BIG Congratulations to all the other finalistes, so many beauties to be seen  😀


I’m also entering my card to the SSS Monday Challenge “Mythology/Inspired By A Storybase on the Chinese legend of the Princess and the Blue Rose that you can read here.

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_2560
