Happy Weekend all! Another Justrite rose sample today. I started with some card from my stash (can't really describe the colour except for a pinkish lilac maybe) and paired it with milk coloured card. Starting from the background, I used the new Baroque mask and inked the mask with Clear Perfect Medium and carefully laid it on top of my card and letter pressed it through my GC to transfer the ink to the card. I heat embossed it with our new Ivory embossing powder. I love this as it matches our milk card so nicely! I have never been able to find ivory embossing powder before so I am chuffed to bits to have this in our line now. I decided to create a frame for my rose and background by using the Grand Square dies. I picked a couple of sizes and used the in between sizes to create an embossed design into the frame. I think that this is easier to do if you emboss first, remove the centre dies, then cut (it keeps that problem with the card coming out of the dies from happening). I added mounting foam to the frame and added it over my letter pressed background. Next I stamped the Vintage Rose by Justrite using a Coffee Archival ink pad. I coloured it with Distress Markers and cut it out with the matching die. I stamped it again and coloured just the rose and fussy cut it to add to the original with mounting foam. I decided to add a bit of a decorative backing to it so I cut one of my California Collection Decorative Frames with the centre cut out in the same pinkish card and underneath that I added a Gold element Four die cut out of milk card. I liked the way these two layered up. I tied a messy bow out of chalk seam binding and added a satin flower with a pearl centre from my stash. Finished dimensions are 8" x 8" in size.
