Mixed Media Watercolor Wonder Roses

Hi Friends!!

This Mixed Media card was created using the Can You Case It #117 Color Challenge along with the Watercooler #65 “Anything Goes” Challenge.

This was a fairly simple card to make since the retired Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper (DSP) roses are the main focus and with a bit of fussy cutting, your images are ready to go! 

If you have not visited the above galleries yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- great inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Die cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock using the My Favorite Things® (MFT) Blueprints 13 Stitched Rectangle Die and repeatedly stamp the Notable Notions script stamp with Very Vanilla Craft Ink (it is hard to see this in the photo but it is there :-)).

Carefully cut the flowers from the retired Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper and place several roses onto the die cut rectangle (excluding the large one on the left and the central one on the right- set aside for mounting later).

Cover all of the flowers (including the two set aside) along with the background panel with Tim Holtz® Distress Crazing Collage Medium, allow the medium to dry and mount the panel onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.

Another view- a bit easier to see the background stamp
and popped up flowers in the center :-)
Adhere a piece of 1” Black Satin Ribbon along with the cream colored Crochet Lace to the lower part of the panel, and mount the entire panel onto the Basic Black card base.

Add additional shadows to all of the petals on the roses (including the two set aside) with the retired Stampin’ Write Crisp Cantaloupe Marker and mount the two individual roses with dimensional foam.

Ink the sentiment from the retired Absolutely Fabulous set with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock.

Cut the sentiment out with the MFT Blueprints 16 Label Die and mount onto the ribbon with dimensional foam.

Add a few Pearls to the upper left hand and lower right hand corners to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Absolutely Fabulous, Notable Notions (both retired Stampin’ Up!)

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, retired Craft Very Vanilla; retired Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin’ Write Marker; Tim Holtz® Distress Collage Crazing Medium

Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, retired Watercolor Wonder DSP

Accessories: Big Shot™, MFT Blueprints 16 & 20 Dies, 1” Black Satin Ribbon, Pearls

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friends!

Very pretty card, Julie. Love how those flowers pop against the black background. Thanks for joining us this week at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges.

Hi Julie, what a pretty card. The black background certainly makes your cut out DSP flowers "pop". I imagine this card is stunning in person from the glimpse of the background stamping one can see in the second image you've posted. The angle allows the light to catch that lighter ink. The stitching in the dies must also show up beautifully in person. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
